The death of a man at this year's Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas has been confirmed to be Ecstasy related.

Montgomery Tsang collapsed in a parking lot for the electronic music festival on June 20 evening and was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Billboard reveals that a coroners report published today (July 11) has determined that the cause of Tsang's death was an "accidental overdose on ecstasy, exacerbated by his pre-existing condition of an enlarged heart."
