It was from natural causes, apparently.
But still. A Polish man is dead now, and maybe he would still be alive if he hadn’t attended the fest.
Life is so fragile and delicate.
Reports claim the 52-year-old man was found dead earlier today (August 2) in his tent at this year’s Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Gemany.
A statement from the festival organizers said that the man “died of natural causes.”
Right. Because they performed a quick autopsy, and being doctors as a hobby, determined nothing nefarious was involved.
Last year, the accidental death of a young man cast a shadow over the proceedings; dude died of carbon monoxide poisoning while lying under a trailer tarpaulin.
Next year, the festival will boast Emperor as a headliner.
That’s fucking awesome.
