Tiësto honors Avicii with 12-minute tribute during EDC
In the month since Avicii‘s passing, DJs and producers around the world have paid homage to the pioneering artist with heartfelt tributes. And while he will no longer grace the world’s main stages playing for thousands of ecstatic fans, Avicii was there in spirit at EDC Las Vegas 2018.
Godfather of EDM Tiësto carved out more than 12 minutes of his EDC Las Vegas set to honor his friend, playing some of Avicii’s biggest hits. “Wake Me Up” collaborator Aloe Blacc even joined Tiësto on stage to contribute live vocals to the song. The set included everything from “Levels” to “Seek Bromance” as Tiësto brought some of Swedish producer’s smash hits to the Kinetic Field.
“Tonight, we celebrate his memory,” Tiësto announced to the crowd before launching the portion of his set with 2015 hit “Waiting for Love.”
