The Glastonbury Festival kicked off yesterday, and already there’s been a reported death. According to the Mirror, a 67-year-old woman has died, supposedly of natural causes.

Additionally, a 26-year-old man is currently in a “life-threatening condition” after overdosing on the drug Ketamine at the British music festival.

It hasn’t been a good week for live-music fans. Two people died over the weekend at the Electric Daisy Carnival. And last night, 36 people were rushed to the hospital at a Boston concert by EDM DJ Avicii.

Glastonbury, which is celebrating its 44th year, sold out within minutes, even before any of the headlining acts were announced. The fest’s biggest artists don’t hit the stage until tomorrow, but police have already made 12 drug-related arrests.

Hopefully, this will be the last bad news coming in from Glastonbury this year.
