Avicii laid to rest in a private funeral in Stockholm

The musician, whose real name was Tim Bergling, “was buried Friday at the Skogskyrkogarden cemetery in Stockholm”, Ebba Lindqvist told AFP.

The Swedish superstar DJ was buried in a private ceremony with just his family and close friends present, his agent said Tuesday.

Located in southern Stockholm, Skogskyrkogarden, or “Woodland Cemetery”, is a UNESCO world heritage site that blends vegetation and architectural elements where Swedish actress, Greta Garbo is also buried.

Avicii was found dead on April 20 in what was allegedly described to be suicide at the capital of the Gulf sultanate Oman, where he had been on holiday with friends.

In an open letter published several days after his death, his family said he “wanted peace” and “could not go on any longer”.

“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness,” they wrote in the letter.

Avicii had made no secret of his health problems, including pancreatitis, triggered in part by excessive drinking linked to his party lifestyle.

He stunned fans in 2016 when he announced his retirement at the age of 26, saying that he wanted to leave the high-flying electronic music lifestyle.

Avicii, who had worked with stars like Madonna and Coldplay, was among the first DJs to break through into the mainstream with his hit songs “Wake Me Up” and “Levels” as electronic dance music grew over the past decade from nightclubs to Top 40 radio.
