One of the most memorable moments during the festival is when fans in the crowd revealed a massive 33x52ft Avicii flag.
“On April 20th, 2018 Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii, took his own life while going through a crisis. Three days later, a Swedish Facebook group called Svenskar till Tomorrowland (Swedes at Tomorrowland) decided to pay tribute to Avicii during one of the biggest EDM festivals in the world, Tomorrowland in Belgium. The flag was raised by the crowd on two occasions during the festival and received great attention in media, both nationally and internationally.”
“When we decided to auction the flag, we looked at different organizations and the choice fell on Suicide Zero. We think their work and purpose are in line with our tribute and we have had a good dialogue with them. Hopefully the auction can bring a lot of money that can assist them in their work,” says Jonas Thordeman, of the group Swedes at Tomorrowland.
This Avicii flag is currently on tour and it was signed by some leading artists on the scene like Steve Angello, Nicky Romero, Armin Van Buuren, Vini Vici, Dada Life and many more.
There are a little over 8 days left in the auction at time of publishing (10:45a PDT), with the price now sitting at $1,000. You can bid on it here.
