----- THIS IS THE SECOND DEATH that has been reported at an electronic dance music (EDM) festival in the local area in the past two months. On Aug. 5, a 19-year-old man died after attending the HARD Summer Music Festival at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.
EDM events have received criticism from authorities because several persons have died at the festivals in San Bernardino County in recent years. In 2016, three people died after attending HARD Summer in Fontana because of drug overdoses, the Coroner's Division said.
