EDM fans across the world are mourning at the loss of one of the most influential producers to modern day dance music.
No cause for the death has been released, however his publicist Diana Baron did confirm that he was found dead in Muscat, Oman.
"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii," Baron said via statement. "He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time.

During his life, Avicii has performed with Madonna, been nominated for two Grammys for "Levels" and "Wake Me Up."
