It’s official! The Swedish royals are set to rave next month at their wedding and have extended the honour of DJing the celebration to none other than one of Sweden’s most famous exports, Avicii.
Tim Bergling announced in an interview with Swedish music station NRJ that Prince Philip and Sofia Hellqvist had extended him the invitation of DJing the affair at Stockholm’s Royal Palace. Bergling had become acquainted with Prince Philip in Ibiza last year:
I met Carl Philip in Ibiza, where we got to hang out and talk for some time. He is so damn cool and a really good guy, actually. Humble.
Avicii noted that he and the Prince had discussed Philip’s longing to host Avicii at his wedding. Prince Philip shortly after discussed the details with Avicii’s manager. “It will be really fun…it’s an honor of course,” Avicii added.
Fellow Swedes Icona Pop have also been confirmed to perform at the royal wedding. Prince Philip and Sofia Hellqvist will tie the knot with Avicii as both DJ and guest on Saturday June 13th.
