On 30th March 2016, Grammy-nominated producer, song-writer and artist Avicii (AKA Tim Bergling) announced that he was to quit touring – going from a mammoth 320 concerts a year as one of the world’s highest grossing live music artists, to stopping entirely.
In an intimate portrait, Avicii’s journey will be told through True Stories, the eagerly awaited documentary following the superstar DJ’s life from his early beginnings, all the way to his chart-topping, global radio hits, and subsequent struggles with his physical and mental health – a subject often not spoken about in the party world of EDM music.
The uncompromised documentary comes to cinemas around the world on Thursday 26th October, presented by Piece Of Magic Entertainment as part of a very special one-off cinema event, also presenting Avicii’s last ever performance at Ushuaia in Ibiza, filmed on August 26th 2016.
Up-close and intimate, the long form documentary shows him in different lights from mega homecoming shows in Stockholm in front of 80,000 people through to more intimate interviews where he gets personal on the illnesses and challenges that have plagued his career.
Featuring contributions from fellow artists such as Tiesto, David Guetta and Nile Rodgers, True Stories is a document and exploration of the taxing nature and pressures of the intensity of fame from the point of view of artists, as much as it is a film for Avicii’s die-hard fans.
