A 24-year-old man has died at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

Montgomery Tsang apparently collapsed in a parking lot for the electronic music festival and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Consequence of Sound writes that initial reports state that Tsang suffered from a medical condition, however, coroners have not yet revealed the exact cause of death.

The festival released a statement, which compelled event-goers to "look after" their friends. They wrote:

"Today we learned some very tragic news, that after attending the festival a guest of the show has passed away. We are deeply saddened by this news, and hope that everyone will join us in keeping his family and friends in their thoughts during this very difficult time. Dance music fans pride themselves in being part of a loving community and, as we get ready to start the second night of the show, we ask everyone to help us keep this event safe. Look after your group of friends, utilize the buddy system, and if you see something, say something. No one should ever hesitate to ask any of our medical staff, public safety personnel or Insomniac staff for help, or call 911 in case of an emergency. One death is one too many, and we all must do our part to keep each other safe, healthy and happy, tonight and every night."
