RCMP say a death at Shambhala Music Festival today was from natural causes.

Sgt. Darryl Little said in a release issued this afternoon that a death occurring at the music festival being held south east of Salmo was not due to drugs.

“The deceased was from Alberta and accompanied by her husband,” he said.

No further information is being released out of respect for the privacy of the family. The BC Coroners Service attended and is conducting the investigation.

In 2012, there was a drug-related death at the festival, the first in Shambhala’s 15-year history.

The five-day festival ends Monday. Over 10,000 people attend from Canada, the United States and Europe.
