Tim had plans for his music to be performed together with a large live band, and now we are realizing his dream and giving fans a chance to experience his music in this unique way – Klas Bergling, Tim’s father
The Avicii Tribute Concert will be the first time that most of Avicii’s greatest tracks have ever been performed live. It will be also the first time that so many of the singers and collaborators whose performances and productions made his music so special gathered together in one historic moment to perform his music. Fans can expect uplifting and intensely emotional experience, just as his music was when he created it.
Klas Bergling about the concert
At the Avicii Tribute Concert for Mental Health Awareness fans worldwide will come together with his collaborators to honor his music and legacy.
We are grateful that his friends, producers, artists, and colleagues are coming to Stockholm to help. They have all expressed sincere interest and desire to engage in efforts to stem the tide of mental illness and lend their support to our work with the Tim Bergling Foundation. We are very much looking forward to this evening, which will be a starting point for the foundation’s work going forward.
Every year around 1500 people take their own lives in Sweden and globally up to one million. It is a tragedy that affects families, communities and with long-term effects on relatives who live on in grief. It is a global crisis and the second most common cause of death among young people aged 15 – 29. We want this concert to help put the topic on the agenda and pay attention to the stigma surrounding mental illness and suicide. Policies and tools are needed to detect the risks and prevent suicide, especially among young people – Klas Bergling, Tim’s father
