The news came after years spent struggling with health issues that have led to a series of show cancelations.
Although the Swedish star-producer is only retiring from live performances and will continue to make music, it’s still a sad day for fans, festival attendees, and even some fellow producers.
Much love to @avicii and his new beginnings! Thanks for being so inspiring to us and we wish you the best man!

.@avichie Best of luck on the retirement with the music career stuff. I’ve tried twice. It’s not like quitting a fuckin dayjob.
