Amidst the incredibly sad news over the weekend of DJ and producer Avicii passing away, many artists have come forward to pay homage.

In his set at the end of Coachella's weekend 2, Kygo decided to pay tribute to the late DJ by dedicating the closing end all to him.

Kygo said that Avicii was his "biggest musical inspiration".

He was the reason I started making electronic music, so I don't think I would've been on this stage tonight if it wasn't for him.

He asked the crowd to please dance and sing along to celebrate the life of a musical genius.
