CROATIA (CelebrityAccess) – A British festivalgoer has died following a brawl at Hideout music festival in Croatia.
The death is thought to have been the result of a fight between two groups of British tourists, with local media suggesting the incident may have been drug-related.
The victim, who has yet to be identified, was found on Zrce beach early Wednesday morning.
A statement posted yesterday to the festival’s Facebook page read: “Following an incident involving a group of young men at Zrće Beach early this morning, one man tragically lost his life.
“We are giving every assistance to the investigation and our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of the people affected. As always, we are working closely with the local authorities with the safety and security of everyone on site as our top priority.”
Though the investigation is ongoing, local police have reportedly arrested a British citizen at Split Airport, who fits the description of a suspect caught on camera.
Hideout Festival is owned by the UK’s second largest festival operator Global Entertainment.
