An Avon and Somerset Police spokesperson told LADbible: "Police were called at about 2.20pm on Tuesday 27 June after a man in his forties was found unresponsive in his tent in The Park at the Glastonbury Festival site.

"Sadly, the man, a member of the festival's crew, was confirmed dead at the scene.

"The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report is being prepared for the coroner."

Deaths at festivals are rare but not unheard of, with medical services provided at such events and tents set up to treat people who are suffering.

In 2019 a Glastonbury worker who was providing security to the festival was found dead in his tent, though had not worked for the 24 hour period before his death.

Festival Medical Services provide healthcare at Glastonbury as generally most health issues encountered at such events can be treated on site and do not necessitate a trip to the hospital.

Specialist medical teams are also stationed near the front of the two main stages when the acts are performing in case someone requires urgent medical attention.

Glastonbury provides medical guidance to anyone planning on attending in the hopes of making the festival experience as safe as possible, including information on what to wear and what to bring.
