The guys of Da Tweekaz delivered a fantastic achievement last Friday and raised no less than €17,000 for charity. This huge amount will be donated to the Tim Bergling Foundation (founded by the Avicii family), to help people with mental health problems and suicidal thoughts.

Da Tweekaz announced last week that the sixtieth episode of Tweeka TV would be dedicated to charity. “A very special broadcast, because this ‘Charity Edition’ is about mental health”, the duo said at the time. In general, there is still little talk about this problem, although this has changed in recent years. “Unfortunately, many people suffer from mental health issues – not just in the music industry – so this is a way for fans (and us as DJs) to do something.”

Through various challenges, fans could donate money during the stream. Don’t just think of the well-known ‘shots’ and confetti cannons, because Da Tweekaz went for the extra mile. For example, Kenth and Marcus had their heads shaved live on the broadcast. Result: €17,000 that will go directly to the foundation.

The documentary by the late Avicii left a deep impression on the events industry. In a scene where it’s all about partying, where it’s mainly about happiness, it is understandable that it is difficult to be vulnerable. Therefore, this is (again) an important step in a recognized problem among artists and fans. And of course, a great gesture from Da Tweekaz.
