Avicii Finally Laid To Rest Two Months After Tragic Death

Tim Bergling, the Swedish DJ known as Avicii, was finally laid to rest in a Private Funeral in his hometown Stockholm.

Jesse Wait—an entrepreneur and nightclub owner in Las Vegas; and close friend of Avicii—posted a series of photos on Instagram including a funeral program, which had Tim Bergling’s (Avicii) years of life.

In May, there was no official date for Avicii's funeral, but one of his reps told E!News, "The Bergling family has now confirmed that the funeral will be private, in the presence of the people who were closest to Tim. They kindly ask media to respect this. There is no additional information forthcoming."

Avicii died on April 20, 2018, in Muscat, Oman when the 28-year-old DJ took his own life with a broken wine bottle.

In 2016, Avicii retired from touring due to growing health issues. He announced his retirement on his website saying, "I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist.” Avicii's retirement seemed to make a positive impact on his life.

The DJ was known mainly for his EDM music. He received two Grammy nominations for Best Dance Recording with, “Levels,” and “Sunshine.” His songs, “Wake me up,” “You make me,” and “Hey Brother” were a few of popular hits.

With his passing—his family released a statement regarding his struggles with the industry and his love for the music he made. Although he tried to find his balance, the struggle was still there.

"Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress," part of the statement read. "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, and 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."

Avicii was known for his passion for music. Although he retired from traveling for tours, he still continued to make music. His Album, AVĪCI (01), got nominated for Top Dance/Electronic Dance Album in the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.

The 2018 Billboard Music Awards paid tribute to his passing. Halsey & The Chainsmokers presented the tribute before presenting the Top 100 song award. Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers said, "His passing was a great loss for the music world and for us. He was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways. Simply put, he meant so much to us and everyone in the EDM community."
