Google Doodle: Happy Birthday to Avicil

Today's Google doodle: Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, is a 32-year-old Swedish DJ, producer, songwriter, and humanitarian who was honoured with a Google doodle on Tuesday. Avicii revolutionised the dance-pop scene during his brief career by fusing electronic music with a variety of musical styles.

Artists Alyssa Winans, Olivia When, and Sophie Diao developed a video doodle set to one of Avicii's most renowned singles, "Wake Me Up."

Tim, who was born in Stockholm in 1989, began mixing music in his bedroom when he was 16 years old. Under the name "Avicii," he released the dance song "Levels" in 2011, which became one of the first electronic music tunes to reach the Pop charts. Bergling performed an estimated 220 Avicii gigs worldwide between 2011 and 2016, including a five-year residency in Ibiza and sold-out shows at Stockholm's 16,000-seat Ericsson Globe stadium. Bergling was one of the first DJs and producers to share the spotlight previously reserved for vocalists and instrumentalists, with hits like the 2013 bluegrass-house hybrid "Wake Me Up." Bergling was also one of the first DJs and producers to share the spotlight previously reserved for vocalists and instrumentalists.

Bergling also embarked on an American tour in 2012 called "House for Hunger," with earnings going to fight world hunger. Madonna joined him in closing the Ultra Music Festival in Miami that year, and the two broke the festival's live stream viewer record.

Bergling won nearly a dozen international music accolades in a short period of time, including Swedish Grammis Awards for Best Innovator (2012) and Best Artist (2014), as well as a World Music Award for Best Electronic Dance Artist (2014). He earned the American Music Award for Electronic Dance Music Artists (2013), the Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Song (2014), and the MTV Music Award for Best Dance Music Video in the United States (2018).

Google spoke with Avicii’s father, Klas Bergling, about his son and mental health. “The Doodle is fantastic, my family and I feel honored and Tim would have been very proud and love it. It is a friendly and warm story of a young man fulfilling his dream to be a DJ and at the same time telling us that our journey in life is not always easy despite fame and fortune,” he said.

In 2021, it was announced that the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm would be renamed Avicii Arena. The Tim Bergling Foundation, an organisation formed by the Bergling family to celebrate Tim's life and legacy, erase the stigma associated with suicide, and promote mental health awareness, particularly among young people around the world, is leading this campaign.
