A second person has died after attending Las Vegas EDM festival Electric Daisy Carnival, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Anthony Anaya, 25, was found unresponsive at the Vdara resort on Saturday night.

On Friday night, Montgomery Tsang, 24, collapsed in the festival’s parking lot. He was taken to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

A coroner is awaiting blood toxicology reports for both Anaya and Tsang before ruling on the official cause of death.

In 2010, EDC drew intense criticism after a 15-year-old attendee of the festival’s Los Angeles installment died from a drug overdose. That same year, over 100 people were hospitalized. The festival was eventually was forced to relocate to Las Vegas, where its called home for four years. However, as L.A. Weekly points out, today’s news now means seven attendees have died after attending Electric Daisy Carnival’s various installments since 2011.
