Avicii’s Legacy to Illuminate a New Stage with Upcoming Musical

The legacy of Avicii, one of EDM’s most influential artists, is poised to extend its impact beyond the music charts and dance floors to an entirely new stage. Pophouse Entertainment is reportedly developing a musical about the late DJ, an endeavor made possible after the company purchased a majority stake in his music catalog in 2022. According to Kim Nyström, Pophouse’s Brand & Marketing Director, the company has been collaborating closely with Avicii’s estate to shape a long-term brand strategy that honors his contributions to music and culture.

While the musical has yet to be formally announced, a Pophouse representative confirmed to EDM.com that such a project is indeed in the planning stages. “Our job is to make sure that we have an ongoing brand mission that is talking to fans, that is engaging over time,” Nyström told Axios. “Brand engagement will always make sure that the creative projects happen. The stronger the brand, the more people actually want to work with us.”

This musical project is a natural extension of Pophouse’s efforts to keep Avicii’s memory alive. The company is also behind “The Avicii Experience,” a museum in Stockholm dedicated to the DJ, whose real name was Tim Bergling. The museum offers fans an immersive journey through Avicii’s life and career, providing a space to celebrate his music and legacy.

Avicii’s influence on EDM and the broader music industry remains profound, even over six years after his tragic death by suicide in April 2018. His tracks continue to resonate with fans worldwide, maintaining his presence in the musical landscape. The forthcoming musical is expected to further cement his impact, providing a new medium through which his story and music can be experienced.

In addition to the musical, Avicii’s life and legacy are being revisited in the cinematic realm. A new documentary about his life is set to premiere at this year’s Tribeca Festival, promising an intimate look at his journey and struggles. Moreover, another documentary is in the works from Lawrence Bender, an Academy Award-winning film producer, which will offer yet another perspective on the life of the iconic DJ.

Through these various projects, Pophouse Entertainment aims to ensure that Avicii’s legacy continues to inspire and engage audiences. The forthcoming musical, in particular, is a testament to the enduring appeal of his music and the profound impact he had on fans and fellow artists alike. As these creative endeavors unfold, they promise to celebrate Avicii’s life in new and meaningful ways, keeping his spirit alive in the hearts of those who loved his music.
