3 Die After Attending Hard Summer Music Festival in California

Three people have died after attending the two-day Hard Summer Music Festival in Fontana, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. The causes of death of the man and two women in question are still undetermined, but extreme heat has not been ruled out, according to officials.

Live Nation Entertainment, which acquired the Hard brand in 2012, has released the following statement.

“We were deeply saddened to learn about the deaths of three people who attended the festival this weekend,” said Hard Summer spokeswoman Alexandra Greenberg. “While the causes of the deaths have not yet been determined, we ask everyone to keep them in their prayers. Our sincerest thoughts and condolences are with their family and friends.”

Music fests, including Hard, have been relocated in the past due to concerns over the increasing number of deaths and hospitalization of rave attendees. Previously, Hard had been held at the Los Angeles State History Park. Last year it was moved to the Fairplex in Pomona, where two teenagers died after what authorities said were drug overdoses. Electric Daisy Carnival, which is a festival similar to Hard, moved from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway after several deaths were reported after the rave.

Since 2006, there have been at least 24 confirmed drug-related deaths, mostly involving “Molly” or Ecstasy, nationwide among people who went to raves organized by Los Angeles-area companies.
