Thousands of fans have gathered in central Stockholm to mourn DJ Avicii who was found dead in Oman yesterday, aged 28.
Crowds flocked to Sergels torg — the most central public square in Stockholm, the city where the musician was born.
The memorial began with a moment of silence before Avicii’s music filled the square and fans danced as hit after hit was pumped into the crowd.

QUEENSLAND young gun Lana Rogers shocked a star-studded field on Saturday to win a maiden Australian ironwoman title at Perth’s Scarborough Beach.
Rogers, the daughter of two-time Olympic swimming representative Greg Rogers, overcame the disappointment of finishing sixth in the open surf race to bounce back with victory in the carnival’s blue riband event.
“It’s indescribable, it’s amazing, I’m speechless,” Rogers said.
“It’s so, so, so cool. Everything went according to plan in that race.
“I tried to stick with them the best I could on that ski because I know it’s not my strongest leg but swimming is.”
Any disappointment she had with her surf race result would have disappeared after the swim leg in the iron put Rogers back in a winning position.
And it’s no surprise given her pedigree. Dad Greg won silver and bronze medals in Mexico City in 1968 and her sister Dallas only narrowly missed selection in Australia’s Commonwealth Games team this year.
Oscar award-winning actress Natalie Portman has said she chose not to attend a ceremony in Israel to accept a million-dollar prize because she did not want to be seen as supporting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was scheduled to speak at the event.
Portman said she did not want to appear to be endorsing Mr Netanyahu
She said she does not endorse the organised BDS boycott movement, but is critical of Israeli leadership
The actress also said mistreatment of Palestinians was against her Jewish values
Portman’s decision, which she said was “mischaracterised by others,” had caused a minor backlash in Israel on Friday (local time) after organisers of the prestigious Genesis Prize award ceremony said they cancelled the prize-giving.
