Avicii Has Passed Away At The Age Of 28

In a devastating turn of events, news has just come in that Swedish DJ/producer Avicii has passed away. He was 28.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his publicist Diana Baron said in a statement. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

Avicii gained worldwide recognition through his breakout hit ‘Levels’, and continued his rise to superstardom with hits such as ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey Brother’. Following numerous health related issues, the Swede announced his decision to retire from touring, but continued producing music, having released an EP in 2017.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Tim Bergling and his family.
