At the time of his death, Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip of Sweden had not failed to pay tribute to Tim Bergling, alias Avicii. “We were lucky to have been able to know and admire him as an artist and in life he made our wedding unforgettable with his incredible music. Our warmest thoughts go out to his family,” wrote the royal husbands. The famous Swedish producer, musician and DJ committed suicide in April 2018, while in Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman. A disappearance which had deeply shocked his country of origin, the Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven not failing to qualify him as “one of the greatest Swedish musicians”.

And almost four years after his death, the son and daughter-in-law of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia were able to pay a beautiful tribute to their friend. Indeed, the princely couple inaugurated this Thursday, February 24, the Avicii Experience, accompanied by the father of the musician. For the occasion, the young mother of three little boys – princes Alexander, Gabriel and Julian – had opted for a total black look. Princess Sofia wore pants and a sweater in this color, accompanied by an original double buckle belt.

A museum to discover the life of Avicii

The Avicii Experience is an interactive museum. It is located at the Space Stockholm digital cultural center, and opened its doors this Saturday, February 26. A place to honor the memory of Avicii by offering, as the site states, “a glimpse into the life of the artist Avicii and the person Tim Bergling”. A portion of the profits generated by the museum will be donated to the Tim Bergling Foundation. This non-profit association, founded by his parents after his suicide, works for the mental health of young people.
