The International Music Summit (IMS) kicked off in Ibiza today and conference co-founder Pete Tong held a keynote on the topic of mental health.
In the talk Tong focused on the death of Avicii, saying "we [DJs] weren't supposed to die chasing the dream."
He also touched on how the producer, who was found dead in Oman last month, was thrown in at the deep end, quickly becoming a superstar without the necessary preparation.
A panel called Our Duty Of Care followed Tong's tribute to Avicii. Christine Brown of Help Musicians UK said: “People in music are three times more likely to suffer from mental illness. That really pushed us into action”.
It was reported yesterday that a posthumous Avicii album is expected to be released soon.
