Cause of death: Suicide by exsanguination
Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, passed away on April 20th, 2018 in Muscat, Oman. No cause of death was immediately given, but almost two weeks later, TMZ reported that the cause of death was suicide due to self-inflicted injuries with a broken wine bottle, with the Swedish DJ eventually dying of blood loss or exsanguination.
Avicci scored his first record deal after he started posting his remixes on electronic music forums at the age of 16. In 2013, he released his first studio album, True, which was followed by his second studio album Stories in 2017. His third album, Tim, was released posthumously in 2019.
Credited as one of the DJs who ushered electronic music into Top 40 radio in the early 2010s, Avicci was nominated for a Grammy Award for his work on Sunshine with David Guetta in 2012 and for his progressive house song Levels in 2013.
