Avicii Dead at 28 – Swedish DJ Avicii Has Died at Age 28
Global superstar Swedish DJ Avicii (Tim Berglund) died on Friday at the age of 28, according to Billboard.
“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the artist’s publicist Diana Baron said in a statement to Billboard. “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.”
Since releasing his debut album in 2013, the artist embarked on two world tours and was nominated for two Grammys. His music arrived right at the peak of the electronic music boom, when DJs were the tentpole live music acts at festivals and particularly in the club-heavy Las Vegas scene.
The artist stopped touring live in 2016, as he wrote on his website:
WE ALL REACH A POINT IN OUR LIVES AND CAREERS WHERE WE UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS THE MOST TO US.
For me it’s creating music. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do.
Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense – the studio.
The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new.
Hope you´ll enjoy it as much as I do.
As Variety reports, he had suffered acute pancreatitis due to his excessive drinking.
