Tim Bergling, better know known to his millions of fans as Avicii, is at 24 already one of the world's best known and loved DJ:s. He plays sold-out venues all over the world and his name on the line up guarantees an almost insane audience response. But Avicii is also an artist with a conscience and together with his manager Ash, he is dedicated to fighting global hunger. This film follows Avicii during his Spring 2013 tour of Australia, where the profits went straight into their charity project "House for Hunger".
In 2008 Avicii, then aged 18, released his first official single "When I'm Thinking of You" and during the years that followed he built a reputation as one of the most promising new DJ's around. The release of "Levels" in October 2011 became a worldwide hit and changed his life forever. Almost overnight Avicii became world famous, making an impact reaching far beyond the inner circles of electro dance music. Nowadays mainstream artists including Madonna want to collaborate with Avicii and in the film we see them together on stage during Miami's "Ultra Music Festival".
Avicii's music is at it's best live but this film gives the viewers a feeling of what its like to be in the bouncing, sweaty crowd at one of his concerts. "Nothing can beat the feeling when the audience sings along to your songs, and they're all jumping up and down. It's a very special emotion you can't get anywhere else", Avicii says.
Today Avicii plays 300 gigs a year, constantly touring the world. The film portraits a dedicated, hard working perfectionist, always connected to his computer, always creating new music. But the extensive touring and hectic lifestyle comes with a price -- during the tour in Australia Avicii is suddenly hospitalised, after suffering from severe stomach pains. Ever the professional, instead of having an operation, he decides to continue with the last few dates of his tour.
Last year Avicii released his first full length album "True", which instantly became a chartbuster all over the world. The hit single "Wake Me Up" has been streamed over 200 million times on Spotify (a world record), and it has almost 300 million plays on Youtube.

"Polvo Disco, also known as Alexander Longstaff, shows versatility in both analog and digital equipment. The chorus has a much appreciated bass line along with multiple synth patches throughout the track. “Bailando” has a sultry vibe throughout the music video. However, sexy is only one word to describe the infinite dimensions the video captures. What is inherent throughout the video is the stark contrast between the ballerina and the breakdancer. The ballerina is portrayed in a softly lit room performing graceful movements, while the breakdancer practices a much more sprightly dance choreography in a dark alley. The video then portrays another couple dancing together under dramatic lighting that captures the sensual feel of the song".
