A man has reportedly died from a heart-related illness at the 2015 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.

The 47-year-old unidentified festival-goer collapsed on site at the event on Friday and was later transported to a local hospital, the Tennessean reports. His death appeared to be related to a pre-existing cardiac condition.

"Those who were with him informed our medical team that he was suffering from a pre-existing cardiac condition and, unfortunately, we understand that he has died," Carl Monzo, emergency services director for Bonnaroo, said in a statement provided to the Tennessean. "The safety and security of our patrons are our top priority, and our medical staff responded flawlessly. Our sympathy goes out to his family and friends."

This is reportedly the 12th death in Bonnaroo's 14-year history.
