Man Found Dead at 2018 Bonnaroo Music Festival
There's some sad news coming out of the 2018 Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tenn. A man died at the annual music showcase on Friday (June 8).
According to a report from Billboard, the 35-year-old man was found unresponsive in his vehicle. Organizers sought out medical assistance for the man, but they were unable to revive him. He was later pronounced dead by the Coffee County Medical Examiner’s office.
No cause of death has been determined. Those on hand have noted that the man's car was running and the heat in the vehicle was also on. Foul play is not suspected. Festival organizers has released a statement about the incident which reads: "The safety of our patrons is our highest priority, and our sympathies go out to his family and friends."
In other Bonnaroo-related news, some fans who attended Eminem's show at the festival were pissed off at the Detroit rap god for using realistic gun shot sounds during his performance. "I hate to be the one to say it, but being someone who suffers from very mild PTSD, it was EXTREMELY irresponsible and distasteful to end songs w the shot gun sound effect," one Twitter user posted. "I have grown up loving eminem and his music but i was extremely triggered to the point of tears."
Others thought they were overreacting. "So apparently Eminem is performing at Bonnaroo right now and a bunch of younger people are losing their shit because his set included realistic gunshot sound effects," another person added. "I dunno what song(s) it was from, but it sounds to me like a bunch of people became Eminem fans post 2002."
The festival closes out on Sunday (June 10).
