The Avicii Arena is slated to host its very first event on December 1, as announced by the Tim Bergling Foundation and the arena.
With an aim to draw attention to struggles with mental health, suicide, and the stats which show the issues escalating and getting worse, ‘Together For a Better Day’ is set to be the first of an annual event.
The multi-genre event will include acts from the realm of EDM, pop, R’n’B as well as classical music. The event highlights mostly Swedish artists including Galantis, Håkan Hellström, Miriam Bryant, Amason, Annika Norlin, Cherrie, A36, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and more. 14-year-old rising star Ella Tiritiello, who captured the world’s attention with her rendition of Avicii’s song “For A Better Day” at the inauguration of the arena will also perform, and the evening will include tributes to Avicii’s musical heritage as well as collaborations and surprise guests.
In May of this year, the iconic landmark Ericsson Globe changed its name to Avicii Arena to honor Tim Bergling. Their official website shares the vision behind it saying “The new name is not only a tribute to one of the greatest Swedish artists of our time, but the arena will be a symbol and meeting place for initiatives focused on young people’s mental health and future.”
Speaking about the event, Klas Bergling, Avicii’s father and the co-founder of the Tim Bergling Foundation said “I hope we succeed in creating a feeling that we really do this together because it is only together that we can make a difference. Young people are our future and we must be afraid for them. It is unacceptable that they are getting worse and that suicide rates are rising in that group — and it is our duty to do what we can to break that trend.”
Tickets for the event are on sale now and available here.
