The music industry is coming together to honor Avicii.

Tickets for a star-studded concert to celebrate the late Swedish EDM artist went on sale this week and sold out in thirty minutes, according to Billboard.

Fans wasted no time scooping all 55,000 seats to The Avicii Tribute Concert for Mental Health Awareness scheduled for December 5 at Stockholm’s Friends Arena.

Slated to perform are many of the original artists who sang on some of Avicii’s biggest hits including Adam Lambert, Rita Ora, Aloe Blacc and Audra Mae. In addition, David Guetta, Kygo, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike are among the DJs who will open the performance.

Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead from an apparent suicide in his hotel in Oman on April 20, 2018. He would have turned 30 on Sunday.

Earlier this year, his family started The Tim Bergling Foundation to tackle mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

"The Tim Bergling Foundation will advocate for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and promote removing the stigma attached to the discussion of mental health issues," read a statement on the benefit concert’s website.

"It will support science-based organizations that engage in research into the causes and prevention of suicide, particularly for young people.”

The foundation will also aid causes which were important to Avicii such as combatting climate change and world hunger.

All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Tim Bergling Foundation.

Avicii’s last album, “Tim,” was released in June and consists of music he was working on, with collaborators brought on to finish the record.
