For months, fans have been anticipating the Avicii Tribute Concert for Mental Health Awareness and it’s almost time. The show, to take place at Friends Arena in Stockholm, sold out instantly — however, you can still watch the live stream from wherever you are. The Avicii Tribute Concert will be live streamed globally on the late producer’s official YouTube, Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as other outlets*.
For the first time ever, 19 collaborators from Avicii’s biggest hits, including Aloe Blacc, Adam Lambert, Dan Tyminski, Rita Ora and other surprise acts, will come together with a 30-piece ensemble to perform. There will also be headline DJ sets from David Guetta, Kygo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Laidback Luke and Nicky Romero, not included in the broadcast.
The Tim Bergling Foundation will donate all proceeds to mental health needs and suicide prevention for young people.
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, Avicii’s father
Tune in for the main concert on December 5th at 9 pm – 11:15 pm local time (CET).
*Other outlets include: SVT (Swedish TV), YLE (Finnish TV), SR (Swedish Radio), Fun Radio (France), Evolution Radio (US iHeart Radio), Firelane (US AMP Radio), Block FM Radio (Japan), EBU (European Broadcasting Union), and more.
