A person has died while attending the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee, reports the AP. Coffee County Sheriff Steve Graves confirmed a body was found Friday morning at a festival campground. The sheriff's office has identified the man as 32-year-old Michael Donivan Craddock, of Mount Juliet, Tenn. Coffee County sheriff's spokesman Lucky Knott says officials are investigating the cause of death but foul play is not suspected.

Craddock was found dead inside a vehicle, reports USA Today. Graves said dozens of people have been treated for heat-related issues at the festival, which began Thursday in Manchester and runs through Sunday. This is the 13th death at the music and arts festival in its 17-year history, officials said. Festival headliners include Eminem, Muse, and the Killers.
