As part of their Mental Health Awareness Week, UK event promoter Elektriqa has partnered with Lonz Photography to host a charity event in honor of the late Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii. The event will take place this Friday, May 18 at Digital Newcastle in the United Kingdom.
The event has promised to donate 100% of the profits to the Tyneside branch of MIND, an organization dedicated to supporting those with mental illness. The charity event features a stacked UK-based lineup, including D.O.D., Corey James, Jack Wins, Junior J, Futuristic Polar Bears, and many more. Tickets are on sale starting at just £5 ($6.75 US) – you can purchase a ticket here, or simply make a donation. Donations of any amount are appreciated because they will go towards a wonderful cause.
“So with the right intentions in mind and not to make any commercial profit at all, we decided on putting a plan together for a party to beat all parties and one that the entire pot goes to support Men’s Mental Health Charities, to help other people in need of support and advice before it gets the better of them.”
Their hope is to celebrate the life and music of Avicii while bringing awareness to the issue of mental health. Seems like these guys have the right idea during a time of need. To visit the Facebook page for the event and to learn more, click here.
