Ever since Avicii‘s tragic passing, his close family have made it their mission to promote mental health awareness. Coming up, a very special performance is being planned to do just that while celebrating the life and work of the EDM legend.
The Avicii Tribute Concert for Mental Health Awareness is set to take place December 5th in the producer’s hometown of Stockholm, Sweden at Friends Arena. Just for the occasion, 19 of Avicii’s original collaborators are coming out to perform on stage with a 30-piece band. This includes Aloe Blacc, Adam Lambert, Rita Ora and more.
There’s a stacked lineup of DJs, too. Avicii’s friends including David Guetta, Kygo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Laidback Luke and Nicky Romero are all expected at the star-studded event. Plus, even more artists to be announced.
Fans can bet on hits like “Levels,” “Wake Me Up,” and “SOS” coming to life on stage like never before.
“Tim had plans for his music to be performed together with a large live band,” Avicii’s father, Klas Bergling, explains. “And now we are realizing his dream and giving fans a chance to experience his music in this unique way.”
Tickets go on sale this Thursday, September 5th at 10 a.m. CET. Proceeds will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation. More info here.
