Swedish DJ "Avicii" Tim Bergling Is Confirmed Dead At Age 28

CREDIT Piece of Magic

The Swedish-born producer and Grammy-nominated DJ known as Avicii has been found dead at the age of 28.

Publicist Diana Baron released a statement confirming the news, saying "The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this hard time", the statement said.

"The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this hard time", the statement said. No cause of death was given and Baron said no further statements would be released.

The artist continued making music thereafter and had been nominated for the 2018 Billboard Music Award for his album "Avicii (01)".

In 2016, Avicii retired from live performing due to health reasons, having suffered from acute pancreatitis owing, in part, to excessive drinking.

The condition forced him to cancel shows in 2014 as he had to have his gallbladder and appendix removed.


His biggest hits included "Wake Me Up", which went to number one across Europe in 2013 and featured the soul singer Aloe Blacc.

'It's been a very insane journey. It was the best time of my life in a sense.

In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Avicii reflected on his decision to stop touring, explaining how multiple hospitalizations and life on the road began to take their toll. That is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do.

Avicii performs at the Summerburst music festival at Ullevi stadium in Gothenburg, Sweden.

'Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do'.

"The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys", he wrote online.
