Stockholm’s Ericsson Globe concert venue renamed after Avicii

The renowned Ericsson Globe venue situated in Stockholm will honour the late electronic music star by renaming the venue the Avicii Arena.

The venue renamed in Avicii’s honour will be a global hub for sharing ideas on young people’s mental health.

The name change has blossomed through the collaboration of the Tim Bergling Foundation, ASM Global’s Stockholm Live, Trygg-Hansda, and Bauhaus. The idea behind the renaming is to foster a new “global hub for sharing ideas on young people’s mental health”. In association, The Royal Stockholm Philarmonic Orchestra has recorded a new version of Avicii’s track ‘For A Better Day’ with the vocals sung by 14-year old Ella.

Back in 2012, Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) played two sold-out shows at the venue. His father Klas Bergling said:

“It was a significant milestone in Tim’s career when he played here nine years ago, and he would be extremely proud that this iconic building from today will bear his name”.

Klas Bergling is the co-founder of The Tim Berling Foundation, the mental health charity set up by Klas and the rest of his family in 2019 following Avicii’s suicide in 2018 at the age of 28.

Andreas Sand, CEO of Stockholm Live, went on to say:

“Being able to use one of Sweden’s most famous and visited buildings as a symbol and meeting place for one of the most important societal issues of our time in the way we now do together with our partners feels fantastic”.

Alongside this collaboration, the Tim Bergling Foundation is running a project with the same name ‘For A Better Day’, encouraging people under the age of 25 to send in their personal concerns and suggestions on how to build ‘a better tomorrow’. The submissions are given to the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven in August.

One thing is certain Avicii may be gone, but his legacy lives on through the amazing music he created, the memories he left so many fans with, and the incredible Tim Bergling Foundation his family carry the torch for, ensuring the young people in the world are left with a better tomorrow.
