2nd person found dead at Glastonbury Festival

A second death has been reported at Glastonbury Festival 2023. 

According to Far Out magazine, the body of a man in his 40s was found in a tent on Tuesday, June 27th, during the festival clean-up operation. He has been confirmed as one of the festival’s staff members, but the death is not being treated as suspicious. 

Police were called to the unresponsive body’s location near The Park stage on Tuesday afternoon at 2:20 pm. Sadly, the authorities could do little to help as the body was declared dead at the scene. Shortly after, Somerset Police confirmed that the man had been a member of the festival’s on-site crew. 

“The death is not being treated as suspicious, and a report is being prepared for the coroner,” the police stated via Metro. 

The death has been recorded as the second of this year’s festival at Worthy Farm. The first was also a male in his 40s, who collapsed on the raised former railway line footpath between Arcadia Stage and the Other Stage just before 4 am on Sunday.
