The life, music, and legacy of one of EDM's most prolific songwriters will be on display in his hometown of Stockholm, Sweden in the new year.
The late Tim Bergling took his own life on April 20th, 2018, while traveling in Muscat, Oman. Better known worldwide as the "Wake Me Up" DJ and producer Avicii, he will be honored with a museum dedicated to the impact he and his music has made on countless fans over the years.
An official opening date has not yet been announced.
'The Avicii Experience' is set to be housed in one of the city's main squares, inside a new "digital culture center" that will also highlight gaming, music, and content creation. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Tim Bergling Foundation, created by Avicii's parents Klas Bergling and Anki Lidén following their son's death, which focuses on suicide prevention and mental health.
In case you missed it, Avicii was honored earlier this year by his peers, being awarded Best Album for his posthumous release, TIM, at the 2020 IDMAs. The festivities were hosted virtually amid the COVID-19 health crisis after this year's Winter Music Conference was officially canceled.
