An Avicii memorial site is being created in honor of the late Swedish producer in the Östermalm district of Stockholm, according to news published in Sweden’s daily paper Dagens Nyheter. Andréa Hedin, Östermalm’s district committee chair said she believes the dedication of the new memorial site near where Tim Bergling grew up and went to school felt obvious in consideration of Avicii’s larger-than-life contribution to Swedish music.
Klas Bergling, Avicii’s father and founder of the Tim Bergling Foundation, which is geared towards raising mental health awareness and suicide prevention, celebrated the decision by Östermalm’s district committee, saying,
“We feel honored that the district committee is taking this initiative. This place will give the opportunity to remember Tim and his music that has meant and still means so much to many people around the world.”
Currently, Östermalm’s district committee has not shared a public opening date for the new memorial site.
