How many 24-year-olds can say they’ve collaborated with the likes of house gurus David Guetta and Tiesto and performed in sell-out stadiums around the world! Avicii can – now here’s more on the self-taught electro master/DJ whose string of hits includes Seek Bromance, My Feelings For You and the current chart-topper, Levels.

- His real name is Tim Bergling and he hails from Stockholm, Sweden. He got his big break at 18 compiling a remix of the theme song to the popular Commodore 64 video game Lazy Jones.

- His biggest musical inspirations are Swedish House Mafia and Eric Prydz. “They were the ones who first got me into house,” he says.

- People flock to his shows and he plays to hundreds of dancing people. “It’s amazing,” he enthuses. “I mean, it’s why I got into it this in the first place, why I chose to do it professionally. The kick you get out performing to a live audience – you can’t compare it to anything else.”

- Last year he was ranked No 6 on the Top 100 DJs list in DJ magazine.

- If he wasn’t a musician he reckons he’d “probably be working in telecom sales or be studying like many of my friends”.
