<a href="/music/French-Montana">French Montana</a> celebrated <a href="/music/Avicii">Avicii</a> in Norway on Saturday (May 5), bumping the recently deceased DJ's hit <a href="/articles/columns/chart-beat/8454344/avicii-billboard-dance-charts">"Wake Me Up!"</a> during his set.

A sea of mostly high school seniors at the Landstreff Russ celebration in Stavanger, Norway, responded to the tribute with enthusiasm, jumping around while wearing the event's traditional garb of colored overalls.

Montana shared the scene in an Instagram video, writing, "YOU WAS SHINING THROUGH THESE DARK CLOUDS ON US !! @avicii WHAT A POWERFUL MORNING."

The weekend-long gathering also features <a href="/music/G-Eazy">G-Eazy</a>, <a href="/music/Martin-Garrix">Martin Garrix</a> and <a href="/music/Macklemore">Macklemore</a>.

Since the 28-year-old Swedish producer, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead April 20, many artists have found ways to remember him. His family <a href="/articles/news/dance/8389218/avicii-death-family-heartfelt-second-statement">released a statement</a> thanking fans and artists for their support.
