The annual Glastonbury Festival in England is in full swing this week, and yesterday there was both a death and a severe drug overdose. Britain’s Guardian.com reports that the death was a 67-year old woman, who passed away Wednesday (June 24) night from “natural causes… police believe she may have had an underlying medical condition.”

The overdose was a 26-year old man who was taken to a Bristol hospital and is “fighting for his life after having an adverse reaction to the drug ketamine… police did not believe it was contaminated and regarded this as an individual reaction.”

Glastonbury ’14 featured headliners Arcade Fire, Metallica, Jack White (previously reviewed HERE at Blurt), Elbow (reviewed HERE), Black Keys and plenty more. See the poster below for the full roster.
