Terminally Ill Dog Named Kygo Will Meet Namesake DJ

Spotted on The Dogist, an Instagram favorite known for capturing heartwarming moments of dogs and their owners in New York City, Kygo is a mix of Husky, Malamute, Poodle, and Collie. At seven years old, Kygo is battling cancer, with his owner sharing that he doesn’t have much time left. Found in the woods of Tacoma, Washington, Kygo’s mother had a tough start. Kygo now has osteosarcoma, and despite radiation treatments, the cancer has spread to his lungs, and he has developed pneumonia. His owner is dedicated to making his remaining days as happy as possible, expressing a wish for Kygo to meet his namesake, the Norwegian headliner, Kygo.

This touching story captured the attention of many, including the DJ himself, who responded on The Dogist’s post with an invitation to meet at the Palm Tree Music Festival in the Hamptons on June 22. This interaction has garnered significant attention, with Kygo’s comment amassing nearly 27,000 likes at the time of this publication.

The Palm Tree Music Festival will feature Kygo headlining alongside Swedish House Mafia, Purple Disco Machine, Sofi Tukker, and Xandra. This festival is part of a series that aims to gather music fans in aquatic environments, creating an immersive experience that plays off of Kygo’s tropical and boat-centric lifestyle.
