27-Year-Old Bonnaroo Music Festival Attendee Dies
A 27-year-old man attending Bonnaroo has died, as Manchester Times first reported, and officials confirm to Billboard.
"The well-being of our patrons, staff, volunteers and artists is our primary concern, and we work diligently to ensure the safest festival possible. Yesterday, 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 where he died. We understand that he had an underlying medical condition, but we have no further information at this time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends," Bonnaroo organizers said in a statement.
