Avicii documentary to be released in 2023
A documentary on the life of Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, is currently in production, with a release slated for 2023.
Directed by Swedish filmmaker Henrik Burman, the film will take a look at Bergling’s journey from unknown artist to international EDM superstar, with previously unseen archive footage and interviews with the late artist.
It also includes newly produced footage and interviews with family, friends and colleagues about his life and music, and began production in 2019.
Burman, whose first film, on Yung Lean, debuted in 2020, said, “My goal is to provide an honest and fresh perspective on the lives of artist Avicii and Tim. I want this to be a film that surprises audiences and challenges the public image of today’s greatest Swedish international artist and in doing so also highlights what his music has meant to so many people. “
In June, Avicii’s hit single “Levels” was ranked # 1 among Tomorrowland’s 1000 Best Festival Tracks, for the second year in a row, as decided by a global audience vote.
An animation based on the late artist’s hit “Wake Me Up” was also shared by Google earlier this month to mark what would have been Bergling’s 32nd birthday.
