It’s been announced that Avicii’s legacy will be honoured with a tribute museum in his hometown of Stockholm.



According to Billboard, “The Avicii Experience will be an immersive experience as fans find themselves experiencing Avicii’s journey from producing in his bedroom to global success and recognition.  The museum will feature memorabilia, never-before-seen photos and videos, and published and unpublished music, which includes previously unreleased early versions of “Levels.” In addition, there will also be unreleased music from Avicii’s posthumous album, TIM.”


The museum will be located in one of Stockholm’s main city squares, Space, and a portion from its proceeds will go towards the Tim Bergling Foundation.

Back in May, Avicii’s father, Klas Bergling sat down with Billboard to talk about his son’s foundation.




BB: In getting the foundation in motion, you consulted with many experts in the fields of suicide and suicide prevention. How did that information guide your decision-making in terms of direction?

“We very much trust the organizations we work with. They have experts, and these experts are the ones who guide us. What we’ve focused on here is helping two organizations build a 24/7, 365 day a year helpline because it doesn’t exist here in Sweden. It’s very strange. I shouldn’t criticize the Swedish government, but we’re lacking that, really.  It’s very obvious that preventative actions are the most efficient actions you can take, and they are often the actions that are least taken. That’s the way it is, unfortunately. The first organization, Bris, is for children. Then we’re work with an organization called Mind, which serves the age groups above that. We’re focusing on children, young people and young grownups.”


BB: What are the foundation’s current priorities?

“The priorities are to continue with the organizations we have partnered with. We’re also are working with an organization called Choice, lecturing in schools about drugs and alcohol. It’s a very nice organization because they don’t point fingers at students; they just tell them exactly what’s happening in the body and psyche when they take drugs and alcohol.  I visited a couple of these lectures, and they get very engaged. The response from all the young people there was tremendous. We are trying to help them scale it up to meet more young people out there in schools.  Then we also work with Suicide Zero, which works to raise awareness of the issue and get more money into preventative actions. These four are the priority right now.”


BB: Do you feel Tim’s legacy has in any way evolved in the last year?

“In the time after his death, we got such a lovely response. We haven’t gotten anything negative. We opened up a website for fans to communicate about their feelings. I would say, it’s a very solid and positive atmosphere around Tim and for what he stood for. Of course it’s lovely to experience that as a parent after this terrible accident, his suicide.”


Although there isn’t a set date, The Avicii Experience is set to open sometime in 2021.
