Just last night, August 28, Avicii said his goodbyes to EDM and played his final set in Ushuaia Ibiza. The sold-out performance was the grande finale for Avicii’s summer long residency at the outdoor Ibiza mega-club, where he’s been a regular performer for the last five years.
Last March Avicii announced his retirement from touring with a heartfelt, personal open letter to his fans. You can read his full statement here where he discusses the hardships of constant travel and the toll it took on his mental health.
“My path has been filled with success but it hasn’t come without its bumps,” he said. “I’ve become an adult while growing as an artist, I’ve come to know myself better and realize that there’s so much I want to do with my life.”
Avicii, born Tim Bergling, is doing what is best and healthiest for himself and his future, and we applaud him for his bravery and honesty to himself.
For his final show, Avicii performed side by side with KSHMR, Seeb, Albin Myers, and the Mambo Brothers. Check out the varied videos from his farewell performance below:
