Not everything is about music and fun at Glastonbury, as two men in their 40s were found dead at the iconic festival in Somerset, England, which attracts approximately 200,000 people. However, both deaths are not being treated as suspicious, according to local authorities (via The Mirror).

Jason Winder, a 48-year-old DJ and radio presenter, passed away in his tent after a “medical incident” at 4 a.m., according to the Avon and Somerset police. Emergency services responded to the scene, but paramedics were unable to revive him.

Winder worked as an expatriate in Phuket, Thailand, where he hosted DJ sessions and radio shows under the stage name Jason Wilder. He was known for his evening programs on Phuket Live 89.5FM, where he played for three consecutive hours.

Meanwhile, another 40-year-old man, a member of the Glastonbury staff whose identity has not been disclosed, also died within the grounds of Worthy Farm.

Reports state that the man collapsed on the elevated path of the former railway line between the “Arcadia Stage” and the “Other Stage” shortly before 4 a.m. on Sunday. Emergency teams attempted to save him, but he was pronounced dead shortly after their arrival.

The Glastonbury Festival has been taking place since 1970, with attendance figures constantly rising. In recent years, around 200,000 people have visited the rural site, making these deaths still considered rare occurrences.

This edition, the headline acts on the lineup included Arctic Monkeys, Guns N’ Roses, and Elton John, with the latter giving his final concert in the United Kingdom as he bids farewell to the stage.
