Following his tragic death last month, Avicii’s family has announced plans for his funeral.

The family of the DJ – real name Tim Bergling – revealed in a statement to Billboard the funeral will be a private event.

“There have been many inquiries regarding the funeral arrangements for Tim Bergling, known by music fans as Avicii,” the statement read. “The Bergling family has now confirmed that the funeral will be private, in the presence of the people who were closest to Tim.

“They kindly ask media to respect this. There is no additional information forthcoming.”

Avicii was found dead last month in Muscat, Oman. He was 28 years of age.

Whilst an autopsy found there was “no criminal suspicion” involved with his death, TMZ subsequently reported the DJ took his own life.

Back in 2016, the DJ announced he was retiring from touring due to health issues.
