Avicii’s Friends and Family Say Goodbye

STOCKHOLM—The funeral of Swedish DJ and music producer Avicii, one of the biggest stars in electronic dance music, took place in a private ceremony in Stockholm last week, his publicist said.

Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead in Muscat, Oman, in April. He was 28.

“His funeral was held last Friday, attended by his closest family and friends,” Swedish publicist Ebba Lindqvist said.

No cause of death has been released. However, Bergling’s family appeared to suggest he took his own life, saying in a statement he “could not go on any longer.”

Avicii, known for a number of songs including “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother,” announced he was retiring from touring in 2016 but had continued making music.
