SiriusXM Launches Official Radio Channel Dedicated to Avicii

The latest portal to the bygone era of Avicii comes from SiriusXM, who has launched a new radio channel dedicated to the electronic dance music legend.

"Avicii Radio" will feature the late artist's many hits as well as "never-before-heard music from his past live performances," according to a press release shared with The channel is produced in collaboration with the Tim Bergling Foundation, the nonprofit launched by his family following his tragic death by suicide in 2018.

It will also include appearances by a number of Avicii's collaborators, including Nicky Romero, Armin van Buuren, Laidback Luke and Aloe Blacc, the lattermost of whom will "voice the channel" as it launches with a spin of their collaboration "Wake Me Up." That track, a generational dance anthem, remains Avicii's most-streamed.

"I can't think of a better way to honor the life and legacy of Avicii," Blacc said. "This SiriusXM radio channel dedicated to the music he made, played and inspired is a lasting testament to his massive influence."


Coinciding with Mental Health Awareness Month, the channel aims to keep the conversation around wellbeing alive, fostering a spirit of community and support. To that end, it will also feature audio messaging from Vibrant Emotional Health, formerly the Mental Health Association of New York City, a community of wellness programs offering confidential emotional support to those in need.

"This is a great continuation of Tim’s relationship with SiriusXM and Geronimo, SiriusXM’s Vice President of Dance Music, who were supporters of his music very early on in his career," added Klas Bergling, Avicii's father and the director of the Tim Bergling Foundation. "We appreciate their interest in promoting the emotional well-being of young people and of the Tim Bergling Foundation and its goals."
