Tim Avicii Bergling has passed away, 28 years old. Bergling passed away in Muscat, Oman and found dead on Friday. “The family is broken,” tells Avicii’s press contact, Ebba Lindqvist, in a comment to Swedish TV-station SVT.
On the last known picture of Bergling, he laughs at the camera – along with the DJ Maitrai who works at the hotel.
– They said they should go to Oman’s outskirts, I do not know where, says Maitrai.
Maitrai added that Avicii was enjoying himself so much in the Middle Eastern country that he extended his stay an extra eight days. Maitrai himself was told about the death when he was playing DJ at the hotel. He says the atmosphere in the hotel dropped.
– To be honest, it’s shocking, everyone in the hotel is shocked.
Artists around the world are showing their condolences to Tim.
I have no words. I remember how amazing it was to make Lonely Together and it felt like just yesterday we were talking. Condolences to Avicii’s family, friends, and the fans who supported him. May he rest in peace. Gone too soon. I’m devastated. Heartbroken.

Something really horrible happened. We lost a friend with such a beautiful heart and the world lost an incredibly talented musician. Thank you for your beautiful melodies, the time we shared in the studio, playing together as djs or just enjoying life as friends.

Avicii’s family confirms that he died by suicide in a new public statement
Avicii’s family confirms that he died by suicide in a new public statement.
The statement translated from Swedish:
“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An overachieving 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.”
His former manager, Arash Pournouri, also wrote in an early statement on Instagram that we wished he could have been there with Tim in Oman to prevent all this to happen.
Avicii died at age 28.
