Exactly a year ago, the twenty-four year old Swedish DJ, Avicii, decided to reach out to fans in a whole new way. The Avicii X You project was an idea that has never been done before, and aimed to create a hit song using 'crowdsourced' material. He invited fans to submit their own sound effects, rhythms, melodies, and vocals, which Avicii then used to create a new song, which was released on 26th February 2013.
2013 continued to be a momentous year with the release of his single, Wake Me Up, which reached Number One on the charts in seventy countries, and was the fastest selling single in the UK in 2013. It became the first song on his latest album, True, which was released in September.
Avicii is now going on his True EU Tour. He will start at Mancher's Phones4You Arena on the 20th February, 7.30pm and then come down to London to perform at Earls Court the next evening on the 21st February at 6pm. Tickets are £41.
