Avicii Quits Performing Live Shows
Popular EDM producer Avicii has gone public with an announcement that he will no longer be performing live shows. Highly regarded in the dance-music realm, many are speculating the potential effects that his decision will have on the EDM scene.
Being a key-figure in EDM’s ascent to mainstream music, it’s not difficult to understand why this decision has evoked the response that it has. Some are fearful of a ripple effect, potentially inspiring other artists to pursue a new endeavor as well.
Through the veil of trademark acts and sold-out festivals, it’s easy to forget that these artists are real people just like us. There comes a time when we must look out for our best interests, and that is precisely what Avicii is doing.
