Kygo pays tribute to 'true musical genius''.
Norwegian DJ Kygo paid tribute to his ‘’biggest musical inspiration’’ Friday night at the end of his set at Coachella. The 26-year-old DJ who credits Avicii for the reason he started electronic music told Coachella festival goers ‘‘I don’t think I would have been on stage tonight if it wasn’t for him’’ and then went on to pay his ‘’ favorite song’’ (‘Without you’) from the recently departed Grammy nominee. While he had the screens lit up with an image of the DJ/Producer himself and a short message which read ''Rest in Peace we will miss you''.
Sadly, Tim Bergling best known to the public and music industry as Avicii passed away on the 20th April in Muscat, Oman at the age of 28. It is said that his death had ‘no criminal suspicion’ linked to it.
Inevitably, he will be incredibly missed by everyone he knew and touched with his music.
