A 24-year-old man attending the Global Gathering in Warwickshire, England, this past weekend was found unconscious by police and paramedics and declared dead at the scene, reports the BBC. The death has been called unexplained, with an examination to follow.

Around 40,000 people are believed to have attended the two-day dance festival north of Oxford, which featured Skrillex, Afrojack, Tinie Tempeh and more. Earlier this month, a young woman collapsed and died at the Vans Warped Tour stop in Toronto.
