Farewell Avicii, Stars Pay Tribute

As the Swedish music star passes away aged 28, artists from across the world have paid tribute to his talent

His untimely death at the age of 28 shook the music world last week, when it was announced that Swedish house music star, Avicii had passed away in Muscat, Oman.
The DJ and producer, whose real name was Tim Bergling, had retired from touring back in 2016 citing health reasons, but that didn’t hamper his creativity, and he counted two Grammy nominations as well as an American Music Award and Billboard Music Award among his many accolades.
And we at WHITE Dubai have loved playing his music throughout the years as much as our guests have loved dancing to it.
Following his sad passing on April 20, a host of music stars from across the world paid tribute to the much-loved artist, and here’s a few of the lovely things they said.
We’ll miss you, Tim!

Calvin Harris: Devastating news about Avicii, a beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do. My heart goes out to his family. God bless you Tim x
