Tragic news from Coachella: Kimchi Truong, 24, passed away Thursday afternoon after collapsing at the festival on Saturday, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office are currently investigating the cause of death. It is uncertain whether drugs or alcohol were involved. The results of a medical examination could take up to six weeks.

Concert promoter Goldenvoice released the following statement:

"Last weekend, a festival attendee suffered an apparent drug overdose. The individual was seen by on-site medical staff and later transferred to JFK Memorial Hospital and later to Desert Regional Medical Center. We are saddened to learn the individual has died. We believe this to be an unfortunate but isolated incident. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends."

This news arrives just weeks after a 21-year-old man was found dead in his car at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. His cause of death is under investigation as well.
