Avicii, the EDM artist/composer who changed the world, is getting his own museum in Sweden come 2021.
What’s being dubbed as the Avicii Experience will present an immersive interactive exhibition that follows the DJ’s musical journey from bedroom tinkerer to global touring and superstar recognition. Through memorabilia, never-before-seen photos, video and music — including a number of unreleased tracks — the museum promises to provide an inside look at the Swedish wünderkinds process and rise to fame. “Tim was a musical genius,” said collaborators Aloe Blacc and Mike Einziger in an announcement about the project. “He was boundless and incredibly driven in his creativity. He had the ability to unite people with his music. I’m certain that with his fans’ memories his legacy will last forever.” This exhibition will be part of SPACE, a digital culture center combining gaming, music and content creation. It’s set to open in 2021 at Sergels torg in Stockholm city center.
Despite releasing such iconic songs such as “Levels,” “Wake Me Up,” “I Could Be The One” the artist, whose real name is Tim Bergling, died prematurely in 2018 of an apparent suicide at the age of 28. His frequent collaborators picked up the pieces to an album that was already in-progress and created the super-effort TIM. Listen to that collection (below) and stay tuned for more news on the Avicii museum.
