Swedish DJ and music producer Avicii has been laid to rest in a private ceremony in his hometown of Stockholm.
Avicii’s friend Jesse Waits, a US entrepreneur and nightclub owner posted a picture on Instagram of the funeral order of service, simply captioned with a heart emoji.
Last month Avicii’s Swedish publicist Ebba Lindqvist announced that the funeral would be held ‘in the presence of the people who were closest to Tim,’ without providing any more details.
The letter, signed ‘The Family’, described Avicii as a ‘fragile artistic soul and a sensitive guy not made for the machinery he ended up in’.
In the days following his death, it was revealed that Avicii had been in a committed relationship with Czech-American model Tereza Kačerová, and was a doting step-father to her young son at the time of his death.
Despite a meteoric rise to success following the release of hit-single Le7els in 2011, Avicii announced in 2016 that he would not longer perform live, following years health problems caused by stress and alcohol abuse, as well as severe anxiety.
