The Netherlands’ tallest church tower paid tribute to the late DJ Avicii on Saturday by playing his songs using its bells.

The Swedish artist, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead in Oman on Friday afternoon.

On hearing the news, Utrecht’s carillonneur (chief bellringer) Malgosia Fiebeg announced on Twitter that the Dom Tower carrilon would play three of the 28-year-old’s biggest hits in his memory.

At 11am on Saturday, the tower’s 13 bells rang out to the tune of Wake Me Up, Without You and Hey Brother.


Reddit user Bafkonijn filmed the special moment and posted it on the site, where it has been viewed thousands of times.
