Avicii’s family have transformed the late EDM star’s website into a digital memorial of sorts where fans can add tributes, memories and messages.
The Avicii.com domain now leads users to The Avicii Memory Board, where fans are encouraged to “share your memories with all of us and let the world know what Avicii meant to you”.
“Tim created music that brought people together with timeless memories from all over the world,” the board reads. So far, many fans and friends of the EDM Legend – real name Tim Bergling – have posted on the website.
“I wasn't interested in music before I heard your songs,” wrote a user called Mitsuki.
“Your gift has always been to talk with your music,” reads a message from a user, Francesca. “You have been able to give us glimpses of your soul. That's why I think your loss was so terrible for us.”
You can check out the website here and leave a tribute of your own.
Since the EDM legend’s tragic death in April this year, tributes have continued to be paid throughout the dance music world and beyond. Last week, Bergling posthumously won in the Best Dance category at the MTV VMAs.
Avicii’s father also recently accepted an award on his son’s behalf at the Rockbjörnen awards gala in Stockholm, Sweden. At this year’s Tomorrowland festival, multiple tributes were paid by both DJs and guests to the sorely missed EDM star. For instance, a massive Swedish flag with Bergling’s image imprinted on it (pictured above) was spread out in the crowd during Nicky Romero’s set. Meanwhile, a heart shaped tribute to the ‘Wake Me Up’ producer was also displayed.
Following the news of his death, DJ Mag’s digital editor Charlotte Lucy Cijffers reflected on the young DJs enormous influence on the global EDM community and on how his openness surrounding his struggles with fame, touring and alcoholism gave a troubling, if necessary, insight into a side of dance music the world often does not see.
