They say, “Only the good die young”…on April 20, 2018, the well-known and loved DJ, Tim Bergling, also known by his stage name, Avicii died at the age of 28 in . Bergling was someone who brought so much joy to the world, not only with his music but his positive aura as well. His legacy will eternally thrive in the EDM world and I’m sure his music will continue to have a place at the top of all our playlists. He was one of the most successful DJ’s constantly hitting the top of the charts with singles such as, “Wake me up,” and “Levels.” Bergling was a true genius and music innovator that forever changed the world with his music.
Back in 2016, Avicii had retired from his musical career, and had explained to fans on his site, “We all reach a point in our lives and career where we understand what matters the most to us. For me it’s creating music. This is what I live for, what I feel I was born to do.” In his 28 years of life, he had impacted and inspired millions from not only fans but other DJ’s as well. Many fellow musicians pour their hearts out through social media mourning the loss. Producer and close friend Hardwell tweets, “Can’t believe this, I’m gonna miss you so bad. From your first show where we played together, to all the amazing memories we shared. Thank you for changing the world with your amazing music and for being such an inspiration. I’m gonna miss you brother, until we meet again!”
Being a supporter of Avicii and his music myself, it saddens me to see someone who’s had such a remarkable influence on others gone so soon. Together, we will take this time to remember Avicii. He’s one who succeeded in not only his career but in bringing together the EDM community through his music and soul.
May Tim Bergling rest in peace.
