A second death has taken place following the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

Anthony Anaya, 25, was found unresponsive on Saturday (June 21) night, reports Consequence of Sound. This follows the death of 24-year-old Montgomery Tsang, who apparently collapsed in a parking lot for the electronic music festival on Friday (June 20) night and was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Coroners are awaiting the results of toxicology tests for both men before revealing the exact causes of death. LA Weekly adds that this is the seventh death linked to the various incarnations of the event since 2010. This year's festival saw sets from Afrojack, Bassnectar, Calvin Harris, Chromeo, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell, Julio Bashmore, Tiesto and more.

Following the death of Tsang, 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."
