A digital memorial for Avicii has been unveiled by his parents
The parents of Swedish DJ Avicii have created a digital tribute space in memory of their son.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead on April 20th in Muscat, Oman, after taking his own life with a broken glass. The tragic death came after he had previously suggested his issues with alcohol where blighting his career.
In a statement released following his tragic passing, the family of Avicii suggested that suicide was the cause of his death. They wrote, “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.”
Now, as tributes continue to flood in for the late 28-year-old, his family have created a space on Avicii’s official website which allows fans to share their memories of the DJ. “Tim created music that brought people together with timeless memories from all over the world,” the website reads. “We created this space so you could share your memories with all of us and let the world know what Avicii meant to you. His music and your memories are forever.”
