Bonnaroo 2018 (more by Kate Cauthen)

A 27-year-old man attending Bonnaroo has died after being found unresponsive at the campgrounds, Manchester Times reports. Ann Ewing, director of crisis communication at Kaleidoscope Media, a PR and marketing firm representing the festival, issued a statement:

The well-being of our patrons, staff, volunteers and artists is our primary concern, and we work diligently to ensure the safest festival possible. Earlier today, our medical team in Plaza 11 was asked to respond to a medical situation in a nearby campsite. The Bonnaroo Medical team and Coffee County Emergency Services were on the scene within minutes. 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.

The underlying medical condition that may have contributed to the man’s death is not currently known, and his identity has not been released.

This sad news follows a death last year at the 2018 edition of the festival, of 32-year-old Michael Donivan Craddock Jr. The Tennessean reported on the results of a toxicology report that showed “cocaine, alcohol and high levels of methylenedioxyamphetamine, or MDA, in his system when he died.”
