Lightning in a Bottle is, no doubt, a favorite festival among many of our team members at EDMTunes – so needless to say, it always pains us when we must announce sad news as such. 20-year-old Baylee Gatlin passed away early this past Sunday morning after attending the festival at Lake San Antonio in Bradley, CA.

Though the cause of her death is unknown, another death at a festival is never good news, as it is all too common across the scene today. Gatlin was evacuated from the event after suffering a medical emergency and pronounced dead at Twin Cities Hospital, located about 35 miles from the lake. An autopsy is planned for Wednesday, according to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office.

The Lightning in a Bottle organizers put out the following statement around the death:

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the woman who passed away at Twin Cities Hospital after attending Lightning in a Bottle this weekend. We ask that the LiB community keep her and her family in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

Our best wishes go out to the Gatlin family and friends.
