Klas Bergling (Avicii’s father) spoke yesterday at IMS Ibiza 2019 – interviewed by Radio 1’s Peter Tong were they discussed The Tim Bergling Foundation in-depth
The Tim Bergling Foundation was set up in March of this year to educate and focus preventative work for mental illness and suicide, also looking at threating animals, endangered species and nature because it was close to Tim’s heart.
“Life as a DJ and travels where you don’t get any rest between, you travel a lot you sleep less. The pressure is great depending on the individual, some people handle it perfectly, others don’t.” – Klas Bergling
He added that the nature of the business provides the type of stresses that not everyone is built to handle.
Avicii raised millions for causes such as world hunger and AIDS. The Foundation will ensure the artist’s desire to effect positive change can continue.
“Tim wanted to make a difference – starting a foundation in his name is our way to honour his memory and continue to act in his spirit”
