Kygo, David Guetta, and more slated for Avicii tribute concertUnnamed 1

As the gargantuan hole in the electronic bedrock that is Avicii‘s death remains audibly agape, plans to honor him on behalf of his most ardent artist friends and collaborators are underway.

On December 5, 19 Avicii collaborators, a 30-part band, and some of the Swedish superstar’s most auspicious companions, like David Guetta, Nicky Romero, and Kygo, will coalesce at Stockholm’s Friends Arena to honor their fallen friend in performing a two-hour orison of his greatest hits. Organizers of the affair, which is to be sponsored by the recently established Tim Bergling Foundation, will be distributing the entirety of the net profits to a number of organizations that direct efforts towards mental health and suicide prevention. The eminent menagerie of vocal collaborators already locked in to perform include Aloe Blacc, Adam Lambert, and Rita Ora, just to name a few. More artists will be added to the lineup in coming months.

“Tim had plans for his music to be performed together with a large live band, and now we are realizing his dream and giving fans a chance to experience his music in this unique way,” said Klas Bergling, Avicii’s father, via a recent press release.

Tickets to the Avicii Tribute Concert for Mental Health Awareness go on sale September 5, at 10:00 am CET.  For more information about artists added to the lineup, check here. Ticket sales will go live here.
