Submitted by: fancylad 9 months ago in Entertainment News & Politics


Tim Bergling, the DJ and producer best known by his stage name Avicii, died Friday afternoon in Oman, Variety reported. He was 28 years old. “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii” the artist’s rep 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.” The Swedish DJ scored a massive crossover folk-electronica U.S. hit in 2013 with “Wake Me Up,” before retiring from touring in 2016.

I honestly never heard of him until today, but that's pretty young to die, especially if it was for reasons that probably could have been avoided.

Such a shame. Among others, Wake me up and Hey Brother are great.

rumham Yeah, swedish music is not my thing it seems (ABBA as well).  I was pretty upset when Mark Bell from LFO passed away though.

This was an externally talented guy. His video Levels is one of my all time favorites.

Truly a bummer, I just turned a late 50's gentleman on to Avicii, he had never heard of him before, he downloaded the True album and loves it.

This is a shame......to young to die......he partied himself to death....drinking was his poison but I'm sure there was more involved. I loved his music, have almost all of it from the beginning.......RIP Avicii.......:(
