ABBA Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

ABBA were awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Swedish Government.

Benny Andersson was the only ABBA member to attend.

The winner of the Export Prize this year was, of course, Avicii.

About the Music Export Prize

Since 1997, the Government has recognised achievements in the music industry that have put Sweden in the international spotlight during the preceding year, and thus contributed to Swedish exports.

The prizewinner is chosen by a jury that each year selects someone in the music industry who has distinguished themselves through their contribution to Swedish export success and helped put Sweden on the map. The jury chooses a winner who is seen as a good representative of Sweden. Success in several large foreign markets carries extra weight, as does proven creative entrepreneurship that has benefited both Swedish music exports and the image of Sweden. The prize may be awarded to a group.

Since 2006, the jury has also chosen a Special Prize winner on the basis, not least, of having made a long - standing contribution to Swedish music exports or having spread Swedish music abroad, thus promoting a positive image of Sweden.
