Avicii’s family ask for respect during private funeral service

“There have been many inquiries regarding the funeral arrangements for Tim Bergling, known by music fans as Avicii. The Bergling family has now confirmed that the funeral will be private, in the presence of the people who were closest to Tim. They kindly ask media to respect this. There is no additional information forthcoming.”

With Avicii’s death confirmed by his family to be the result of suicide, a statement issues shortly after his death stated that, “He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.” Despite many media outlets attempting to blame the death on alcohol or drug abuse, We Rave You reported that Avicii’s demise was as a result of mental exhaustion, depression, and anxiety in Avicii: The Truth, just hours after the Swede’s death.

A true legend, missed by every member of the dance community, you can take a peek at the video below, which shows Dutch EDM Godfather, Tiësto, paying homage to Tim during his EDC set in Las Vegas last weekend:
