According to event organizers, a 27-year-old man passed away at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. In a statement to The Manchester Times, Ann Ewing from Kaleidoscope Media spoke on the tragedy:
“A 27-year-old male patron camping with his father was unresponsive. The medical team administered CPR, and he was transported to the hospital. We understand that he had an underlying medical condition, and that, unfortunately, he has died. We have no further information at this time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.”
It has been reported that the victim was camping with his father and was not immediately pronounced dead, but was transported to a hospital where he later passed. The Coffee County Sheriff’s department is looking into the death. At the time of writing, foul play is not suspected.
The name and cause of death of the victim have yet to be released.
Bonnaroo 2019 took place June 13th-16th in Manchester, Tennessee. The long-running festival featured performances from artists like GRiZ, RL Grime, ZHU, NGHTMRE, and more.
