Another week, another tale of a young person losing their life while enjoying EDM.

Police in Michigan are investigating the death of a young man at last weekend’s Electric Forest Festival.

According to reports, Brian Brockette was a 20-year-old volunteer from nearby Caledonia, Michigan. He passed away on Sunday, the last night of the weekend-long festival, but at this time no cause of death has been determined. The Oceana County Medical Examiner’s Office will complete its investigation after receiving the final autopsy report. Michigan State Police released the following statement about the death:

“The Michigan State Police Hart Post and the Oceana County Medical Examiner’s Office are waiting for the results of an autopsy conducted on Brian Alan Brockette, a 20-year-old, Caledonia, Michigan, man. The victim suffered a medical emergency on Sunday, June 29, 2014, at approximately 11:15pm, and subsequently passed away. The victim was a volunteer for an outside vendor at the Electric Forest Festival. The incident remains under investigation by the Michigan State Police.”

More than 20 people were arrested during the festival, which saw everyone from Zedd to Ms. Lauryn Hill take the stage. The promoters have yet to comment on Brockette’s death.
