Avicii’s parents ask fans to share memories of late DJ on new digital memorial

The DJ died earlier this year, aged 28

Avicii‘s parents have launched a new digital memorial to the late DJ and have asked fans to share their memories of him.

The EDM star, whose real name was Tim Bergling, died by apparent suicide on April 20 after his body was found in a hotel room in Oman. He was 28 years old.

The Bergling family have now turned his website, avicii.com, into a digital memorial where fans can share their stories of what Avicii meant to them.

“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 us and let the world know what Avicii meant to you. His music and your memories are forever.”

Avicii’s father, Klas, thanked fans for their “amazing tributes” earlier this month after he accepted a posthumous award on his son’s behalf. The DJ was honoured at the Swedish Rockbjörnen ceremony in Stockholm on August 15, where his song ‘Without You’ won the fan-voted award for Song Of The Year.

“I am happy to have been given the opportunity to be here tonight to say thank you for this amazing award that you have rewarded Tim and Sandro [Cavazza, Avicii’s collaborator], and to every one of you who has voted for ‘Without You,’ an amazing song,” Bergling said in his speech.

“But also, and perhaps foremost, to say thank you for all and every amazing tribute you have given Tim and his music. From all his fans and others, from churches, schools, festivals and so many more.”

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that a posthumous Avicii single featuring Coldplay’s Chris Martin could be released soon.
