The Flying Dutch festival’s Swedish Journey event has been cancelled amidst uncertainty over whether Avicii would show up to perform, despite the fact that Steve Angello, Alesso, John Dahlbäck, Icona Pop and more were on the bill.
The festival was set to take place on Saturday 30th July at The Hague, Nijmegen, but Alda Events, who run the festival, issued a statement on their website last night (Thursday), announcing that it would not be going ahead.
After retiring from touring earlier this year, Avicii has cancelled his 2016 Las Vegas residency due to “personal reasons”.
The news came in an Instagram post from XS Las Vegas, which you can read below.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, originally said that he would honour all dates planned in 2016 after he announced he would be retiring from touring indefinitely. His team have confirmed that all other planned dates will still go ahead following his most recent cancellation.
Avicii has revealed that he is working on a new album, following the announcement of his retirement from touring.
The Swedish producer said that he is currently finishing the project, which will consist of unreleased songs that were produced over the course of his career.
Avicii has announced that he will retire from music after his 2016 tour.
The Swedish DJ and producer, real name Tim Bergling, made the announcement on his official website this morning (29th March).
He wrote: ”I’ve decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let’s make them go out with a bang!”
Bergling did not rule out making a return to performing in the future but said that he plans to take a break from music.
“One part of me can never say never, I could be back ...but I won’t be right back,” he wrote.
Avicii has revealed another music video from his LP 'Stories', this time for new single 'Broken Arrows'.
It's an inspirational story about an ageing sportsman and his adorable daughter, as they invent a new style of high jumping and eventually win a gold medal.
It's based on the true story of Olympian Dick Fosbury, who pioneered a new jumping technique that became known as the Fosbury Flop.
Watch the video for 'Broken Arrows' below — Avicci's second album 'Stories' is out now.
Over the last few weeks, EDM DJ/producer Avicii has been hosting a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) panel, where he's invited fans to quiz him on his new album 'Stories', production tips and more.
One of the burning questions from Avicii fans was the prospect of a third LP from the Swedish producer in 2016, to which Avicii responded that a new album was 'highly likely'.
He also answered questions about his musical heroes (naming acts like Eric Prydz, Michael Jackson and Ray Charles), his tips and tricks for using FL Studio and lots more.
Swedish EDM superstar Avicii has dropped not one, but two, brand new videos this morning, featuring two cuts from his forthcoming album 'Stories' — and they're both surprisingly dark and disturbing.
Directed by Levan Tsikurishvili and Tim Bergling (Avicii), the first is set to trap-meets-swing-pop banger 'Pure Grinding' and follows the story of an industrial labourer and a bank robber both trying to get ahead in a violent, crime-soaked world.
From humble beginnings as a radio station, the BigCityBeats brand has grown to become something of a musical empire in Germany. In 10 years, the company has added many strings to its bow, including a television show, magazine, club nights and even a successful record label. And then, of course, there is World Club Dome, also known as the biggest club in the world. Sorry, that should probably be: THE BIGGEST CLUB IN THE WORLD. Much better.
