5 fun facts about The Made in Sweden Top 100
1. Swedish legacy
Did you know that the number 1 ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ by Swedish House Mafia counts with the participation of another Swedish artist? The vocals are from the Swedish singer John Martin.

With ‘Levels’ and many other tracks, the late Swedish DJ appears 16 times in this chart, with 3 tracks being in the top 10.
3. Based on true facts
‘Wake Me Up’ (#8) was written by Avicii, Aloe Blacc and Mike Einziger, but according to Blacc, it all started with Avicii being inspired by his own life. Once, on the road, Avicii was constantly thinking and saying how incredible his achievements were, and that the life he was living was too good to be true. “Such a dream”, he kept saying and someone should wake him up “when it’s all over”.
4. Take me back to 2012
2012 was a special year with a lot of tracks that marked the history of electronic music, including many from this Made in Sweden Top 100. Otto Knows is part of this legacy, staying in the top 10 with ‘Million Voices’ (#9).
5. Undercover DJ
Salvatore Ganacci made it to the Made in Sweden Top 100 with ‘Horse’ (#99), but have you ever seen him performing at Tomorrowland? He was the first artist to start his performance from the middle of the crowd! In 2019, the Swedish DJ was among the fans while he was being announced on the Mainstage. He was dancing like everybody and making fun around before actually starting the show!
