Kygo will be replacing Avicii on TomorrowWorld’s main stage next weekend.
Reps for Kygo (real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll) confirmed to Billboard that festival organizers selected the rising, 22-year-old Norwegian star to fill in after Avicii was forced to cancel all scheduled performances earlier this month due to health concerns.
TomorrowWorld’s official website has also been updated to reflect the lineup change. Kygo is now scheduled to play the festival’s main stage on Friday, September 26th from 6:15 – 7:15 pm.

TomorrowWorld’s second incarnation will take place from September 26-28 in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia. Announced headliners include Bassnectar,Kaskade, Richie Hawtin, Skrillex, and Tiësto
