The 32-year old male died at the Vibrant Music Festival, an event touted as an intimate party to kickstart your festival season.
The event was held on private property by Munn Lake near Wilmer.
When police arrived they noted medical professionals trying to revive a 32 year old male in the campsite, reported Sgt. Bob Vatamaniuck. Unfortunately themalecould not be resuscitated and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Currently, the death is not believed to be suspicious.
The Columbia Valley RCMP and the BC Coroners Service are continuing to investigate. The BC Coroners Service confirmed the case is under investigation and could not release any further details at the time.
According to festival-goers, there were approximately 300 to 400 attendees to the festival, which cost between $10 and $90 for entry.
Sgt. Vatamaniuck said this particular festival has not been running very long, so there has not been a history of problems with this event.
The Vibrant Music Festival is a rebranding of a former festival, Nipplepalooza, that ran in the same location for a number of years.
