With every passing festival, deaths at music festivals are becoming a norm, collateral that we hear of every other week.

As horrible as that sounds, it’s a fact. But what’s strange about this death is that it didn’t occur due to the usual factors, i.e., suspected drug overdose or security neglect. The attendee, a young male, as shown in the video, seemed to have climbed a gargantuan statue in order to get a better view of the stage.
