1 min read

It follows the last few years of his life.

This year we lost one of the greatest DJs of all time. 

Swedish DJ Avicii passed away in April. His representative confirmed to E! News in a statement where he wrote:

"It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

"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. No further statements will be given." 

However, fans will receive an insight into the life and music of beloved DJ with the 2017 documentary Avicii: True Stories is coming to Netflix.

The documentary follows Tim ‘Avicii’ Bergling over a period of four years; exploring his mental and physical health issues, and the pressures of touring.

The doco also looks at Avicii’s passion for electronic music and creative collaboration. 

The 2017 documentary was removed from Netflix earlier this year, but will return on December 28.

It was announced the film had qualified for Oscars consideration.

Speaking with The 405 in October 2017, directer Levan Tsikurishvili spoke about his intentions for a truthful portrayal:

"I wanted to do a brutally honest film about Tim as a person and not only about Avicii. Everybody knows Avicii but very few people know Tim.

"I think this documentary really shows Tim’s struggle and strength of character. Being a worldwide superstar artist is not as easy as it looks on Instagram."
