Avicii honored by artists, fans during Coachella's 2nd weekend


Coachella honored the memory of Avicii on Friday by paying tribute to the superstar DJ.

DJ Kygo ended his set with an emotional tribute to Avicii, who was found dead in Muscat, Oman on Friday.

“Coachella, I think most of you guys have heard but today is a very sad day for music. Earlier today I got the news that Avicii passed away only 28 years old. Avicii was my biggest musical inspiration and he was the reason I started making electronic music so I don’t think I would’ve been on this stage tonight if it wasn’t for him. I know he’s inspired millions of other producers out there. So I want to end my set tonight with my favorite Avicii song,” Kygo told the crowd, according to People.
