“The safety of our patrons is our highest priority, and our sympathies go out to his family and friends,” said Bonnaroo organizers to Billboard.

A Bonnaroo rep shared this statement with FADER:

At 10:05 a.m. this morning, patrons approached the medical team in Plaza 6 requesting medical assistance for a 35-year-old male patron in his car. The medical team responded immediately and found him unresponsive upon arrival. The Coffee County Medical Examiner’s office later pronounced him dead.

Our understanding is that his car was running and the heat was on, but cause of death has not been determined. The safety of our patrons is our highest priority, and our sympathies go out to his family and friends. We have no further information at this time. Additional inquiries should be directed to the Coffee County Sheriff’s office.
