Avicii died while vacationing in Oman - a popular vacation destination on the Arabian Peninsula - and was found dead Friday in the capital city of Muscat.

Oman police have ruled out suspicious circumstances in his passing after two post-mortems were carried out.

Police confirmed: "He is survived by his parents, two brothers and sister - who are all completely devastated". As young musicians, we can only hope to build his legacy.

The Swedish DJ and producer was found dead at a Muscat Hills resort at age 28.

A documentary about the DJ released six months ago, 'Avicii: True Stories, ' provides an unvarnished look at Avicii's rise to fame, according to a Variety review.

His most recognised song, Wake Me Up, was a multi-platinum success with the 2013 chart-topper peaking at No. 4 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

"It was such a surreal moment because he was someone I have looked up to ever since I was just 16 years old".

In 2012, he was hospitalised with acute pancreatitis exacerbated by heavy drinking. He also had his appendix and gallbladder removed back in 2014. For me, it's creating music. "I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist", he said at the time. "Coachella, I think most of you guys have heard, but today is a very sad day for music".

Avicii was seen as a pioneer of electronic music and sold out stadiums worldwide. "That's why I had to stop touring, because I couldn't read my emotions the right way". "We love you all so much". It is the beginning of something new.

"Creating music is what makes me happy and I have gotten to know so many great people in my days of touring, seen so many awesome places and created endless of good memories". However, his illness did not stall his studio work.
