The ‘Together For A Better Day’ concert by the Tim Bergling Foundation will take place every December at Avicii Arena.
One of the best full-length EDM concerts on YouTube has to be the Avicii Tribute Concert from December 2019. Now, the Tim Bergling Foundation is working to make an Avicii tribute happen at Stockholm’s Avicii Arena every December. Known as Together For A Better Day, the first edition took place on December 1st, 2021.
The concert series aims to de-stigmatize discussions about mental health and honor Tim Bergling’s legacy. The Together For A Better Day lineup was dominated by Swedish artists such as Zara Larsson and Miriam Bryant. Other notable performances came from Annika Norlin, A36, and Benson Boone. The event also included recorded speeches from Ed Sheeran, Nile Rodgers, and Wyclef Jean.
Most of the programming was original songs from Swedish artists, but Galantis also made an appearance at the very end of the show. Performing for nearly 15 minutes, Linus and Christian ran through a DJ set of their best tracks combined with some of Avicii’s most recognizable songs.
Together For A Better Day coincides with the release of Avicii’s biography and an upcoming exhibition in Stockholm.
Tim: The Official Biography of Avicii was released on November 30th in Europe. In the United States, eBooks are available now, and hardcover copies are coming in January 2022. The Avicii Experience, a museum exhibition, is set to debut at Space Stockholm some time next year.
The Tim Bergling Foundation was founded by Avicii’s parents in March 2019 after his death in April 2018. The December 2019 concert raised $1.7 million towards suicide prevention, and the foundation has been at the forefront of mental health in the music industry ever since. Together For a Better Day was the first Avicii-related programming at Avicii Arena, and it’s set to return to the Stockholm venue every December.
