UTRECHT (CNN) — In a tribute to the late Swedish artist Avicii, a town in the Netherlands played some of his most popular songs with its bell tower on Saturday morning.
Avicii, otherwise known as Tim Bergling, was found dead Muscat, Oman. He was 28.
The Grammy-nominated artist has been one the largest names in the EDM scene for years.
Pim Brassien, 30, of Utrecht, filmed some of the tribute. He recognized the Avicii tracks “Wake Me Up,” “Without You” and “Hey Brother” as the bells chimed.
His death comes just days after he was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for top dance/electronic album for his EP “Avicii (01).”
He had just tweeted, “Thanks for the nomination!” before his unexpected passing.
Some of music’s biggest names have spoken out in tribute to the famed artist.
When asked whether he was a fan of Avicii, Brassien responded, “Of course, who’s not?”
Brassien told CNN he listened to a Dutch radio station play nothing but Avicii songs for two hours upon hearing the news Friday.
Hundreds gathered to mourn his passing in Stockholm, Sweden.
