Many prominent Swedish artists performed
A charity concert has raised over SEK 64 million (59 million) with proceeds to go to help victims of the war in Ukraine. The concert, “All of Sweden Rattles”, was held at the Avicii area in Stockholm where over 6,000 spectators saw locals Veronica Maggio, Tommy Köberg, and Ukrainian Maria Sur perform along with 27 other artists.
The money raised went to 6 different charities and television viewers could donate to the fundraising organization, Radiohjälpen. The Ukrainian Ambassador to Sweden, Andrij Platsjotnjuk, was in attendance for the concert that was broadcast by SVT.
This is not the first time that Sweden has organized a charity concert to help a war-torn country. A similar concert was arranged in 2015 to help the refugee crisis sparked by the Syrian Civil War. “All of Sweden Rattles” follows a similar concert held here in Norway which raised NOK 75 million to aid war victims in Ukraine.
