Tim Bergling (known by his stage name Avicii) tragically died on April 20th 2018.
He was one of the most successful D.J.'s in the world, but as he once said "I love what I do, but I’ve never liked being recognized or being in the spotlight.”
He retired from performing live in 2016 at the age of 26.
A statement issued by his family confirms that he took his own life.
“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.
Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.
Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
We love you, Your family"
Avicii - Rest In Peace.
