Swedish Music Producer Avicii Passes Away, including tribute montage
Swedish DJ and producer Avicii has passed away. The artist was 28 years of age. Tim Bergling, better known by his stage name Avicii, was found dead in Muscat, Oman. Avicii suffered many stints of illness after his rise to fame with his smash hit Levels.
In 2016, Avicii called it quits in the music industry after a string of medical illnesses, which included the removal of his appendix and gall bladder due to excessive drinking. His final gig took place in Ibiza.
He released a documentary after his retirement from the music industry, titled True Stories.
Avicii flipped the music industry on its head when he fused country-folk music with his electronic production.
Wake Me Up was his more commercial breakthrough that moved across the globe!
Avicii's publicist Ebba Lindqvist announced on Friday 20 April 2018 that the producer was found dead, with no cause of death mentioned as yet.
We will wait for more information on his death.
