Boonstock speaks on death
Statement from Boonstock Music and Art Festival Organizers:
Late last night, we learned that one of our guests at the Boonstock Music Festival became distressed while dancing at one of our stages. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, she tragically passed away at the Penticton Regional Hospital.
We are deeply saddened by this news and we know that our communities will band together and keep her and her loved ones in our thoughts.
The culture of a music festival is one that provides a place where everyone belongs, is welcomed and watches out for one another.
We would like to acknowledge our security team and guests who were quick to find help and assist emergency responders.
Lastly, and most important, we send our condolences to the loved ones of this young woman. We are deeply saddened by this news and send our thoughts and prayers.
The Boonstock Music & Arts Festival family.
