The medical examiner’s office wasn’t immediately reporting a cause of death, though multiple reports suggest the pair died from overdoses.

A spokesperson for St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa told WFLA the volume of festival-goers visiting the hospital for drug overdoses over the weekend was “frightening.”

Police didn’t say why the 57 other people were hospitalized.

Police also reported 25 felony arrests, eight misdemeanor arrests and 16 marijuana civil citations at the festival.
