A 24-year-old California man died Saturday morning at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, the latest in a series of deaths at the electronic music festival in recent years.

The victim, identified as Montgomery Tsang of San Leandro, collapsed in the Las Vegas Motor Speedway parking lot and was pronounced dead shortly after 6 a.m., according to the Las Vegas Sun.

A spokeswoman for Insomniac, the company that stages the festival, confirmed the death in a statement issued Saturday, but said the show would continue through its scheduled end Monday.

“Today we learned some very tragic news, that after attending the festival a guest of the show has passed away. We are deeply saddened by this news, and hope that everyone will join us in keeping his family and friends in their thoughts during this very difficult time,” the statement read. “Dance music fans pride themselves in being part of a loving community and, as we get ready to start the second night of the show, we ask everyone to help us keep this event safe.”
