Man Found Dead at Ultra Music Festival
By Scott T. Sterling
While this year’s massive Ultra Music Festival in Miami was another rousing success in terms of attendance, the annual EDM celebration had to endure a string of mishaps along the way including Avicii being forced to cancel his set at the last minute due to illness and a horrific trampling incident that sent a female security guard to the hospital with broken leg and brain hemorrhaging.
Now even more tragically, it’s been revealed that 21-year-old attendee Adonis Escoto was found dead in a parked car near the festival’s Bayfront Park location.
According to the Miami New Times, Escoto told friends he was feeling dizzy during the festival’s second night (March 29). Thinking he’d had too much to drink, his friends took him to the car to sleep it off and sober up. When they returned to the vehicle after the festival ended for the evening, they discovered Escoto had died.
