Five years ago today, I was at a festival in Florida with little to no cell service when suddenly the screens started showing “RIP Avicii.” It was an odd joke, I thought at the time, but very quickly a murmur started to permeate the crowd. I found my way to the media area with access to WiFi and discovered the terrible truth, that the world had lost Tim Bergling, aka Avicii.
Avicii was such an incredibly powerful force in dance music. His loss has continued to be felt every year since and today on the fifth anniversary of his death, we still celebrate his life and legacy.
Tomorrowland One World Radio, just as an example, is dedicating an entire day of programming to Avicii today. Enjoy it here.
