There’s Been Another Electric Daisy Carnival Death

A second person has died in Las Vegas after attending the Electric Daisy Carnival. The first fatality happened over the weekend in the EDM fest’s parking lot.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that a 25-year-old male fan was found unresponsive at the Vdara resort on Saturday night. A Nevada coroner is still awaiting the results of toxicology reports on both deaths before making an official ruling on the causes.

This marks the seventh death at the festival since 2011, a staggering statistic compared to other music fests. EDM has come under fire in recent years for its heavy drug use, especially ecstasy, more commonly referred to as Molly among fans.

Back in 2010, when the festival was located in Los Angeles, a 15-year-old died of a drug overdose and more than 100 people were hospitalized. Festival organizers were pretty much forced to relocate to Las Vegas after that.
