Tomorrowland honors Avicii through 24-hour stream
The electronic community felt widespread sorrow on April 20, 2018 when news came out that Avicii had passed away that morning. Though he’d only been 28 at the time of his passing, the icon already had a long history of electronic music innovation with tracks like his breakout, “Levels,” to becoming one of the genre’s first crossover superstars with fusion cuts like “Wake Me Up” and more recently, Stories. His impact on the scene is indescribable, and as a tribute, mega festival Tomorrowland will be donating the entirety of its April 20, 2019 programming to the artist’s music to pay tribute to his career.
All 24 hours of the day will be Avicii’s best music, with an hour-long “Best Of” set being included. The stream will take place on Tomorrowland’s One World Radio online station. The star and the festival have a long and close history; “Levels” got its first major play in Tomorrowland’s 2011 iteration, and the star also made history with his 2013 and 2015 sets.
