Festivalgoers at the 2019 Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival on June 14, 2019 in Manchester, Tenn.
A 27-year-old man attending Bonnaroo has died, according to a statement officials gave local newspaper the Manchester Times Saturday night (June 15).
“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,” said Ann Ewing, director of crisis communication at PR and marketing group Kaleidoscope Media.
Ewing confirmed: “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.”
