Tiësto paid tribute to Avicii during his set at Electric Daisy Carnival over the weekend (19th - 20th May), with a 12-minute megamix of the Swedish DJ's biggest hits.
The set also featured vocals from Aloe Blacc who took the stage for a live rendition of Avicii’s country-meets-EDM crossover hit ‘Wake Me Up’.
Tiësto urged the crowd to 'celebrate Avicii's memory' before opening the megamix with Avicii’s 2015 single, ‘Waiting For Love’. Other tracks from the mix included ‘My Feelings For You’, ‘Seek Bromance’ and ‘Levels’.
Avicii was found dead in his hotel room in Oman last month (20th April) with his family releasing a statement implying he has taken his own life. He was 28 years old.
Following his death, Tiësto called Avicii “one of the most talented and innovative producers in the world” and devoted an episode of his Club Life radio show to the Swedish star.
Since then, tributes for Avicii have poured in from fellow DJs, friends and fans with Nile Rodgers saying he was “one of the best, if not the best” producer he’s ever worked with.
