Very sad news today as news about the death of world famous DJ Avicii has reached us.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was in Muscat, the capital city of Oman today and was found dead there in the afternoon, local time, states his press manager Ebba Lindqvist.

Rest in peace, Avicii, and our condolences to family and friends.
