HARD Summer Suffers Two Tragic Deaths on Day One

In a terrible turn of events, this year's HARD Summer festival has been dealt a tragedy as two young women have passed away from suspected overdose.

 

Their identities have been withheld and autopsies are scheduled to determine the cause of death, but drug overdose is suspected. Festival overdose related deaths are a recurring and constant problem that plague the EDM culture, leaving festival goers and family members of those affected striving to find a solution to the epidemic.

The high summer temperatures that accompany festivals create a problematic environment for users of rave drugs like Ecstasy, which can cause the body temperature to skyrocket resulting in fatal organ damage.

 

Despite tragedy, two-day festival keeps the beats bumping.
