Avicii’s music and career remains very present in Dance Scene and in memory of all those who like electronic music … But this time the protagonist was the father of the Swedish Producer and DJ. Last Wednesday night was Avicii’s father, Klas Bergling, who received the award at the Rockbjörnen gala in Stockholm.
“Withou You“, a track that belonged to the last EP released by the artist – together with “Lonely Together” or “You Be Love” – was awarded the title of “Best Swedish Band of the Year” and it was up to Klas Berling to represent and receive the award in name of Avicii. A very special and emotional moment (which you can see in the video below from 2:44:45 minutes) in which Klas proudly remembered the work of his son and thanked the support of the fans who since the death of the artist have managed to keep the memory of Avicii.
Klas Berling said – “I am happy to have been given the opportunity to be here tonight to say thank you for this amazing award that you have rewarded Tim and Sandro and to everyone of you who have voted for ‘Without You,’ an amazing song. But also, and perhaps formost to say thank you for all and every amazing tribute you have given Tim and his music. From all his fans and others, from churches, schools, festivals and so many more. It’s been almost incomprehensible and it has warmed our hearts, all of the family, during this hard time, so again a big thank you to everyone”.
