LAS VEGAS (AP) — More than 130,000 people poured through the gates of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway each night of the weekend-long Electric Daisy Carnival, a dazzling, multi-sensory ode to electronic dance music.

But tragedy also marked the festival. Montgomery Tsang of San Leandro, California, who was attending the event, died Saturday morning after being taken to the hospital. The Clark County coroner's office said the cause of death for the 24-year-old was pending toxicology and other tests.

Event producer Insomniac issued a statement saying it was "deeply saddened" by the death and hoped attendees would do their part to keep the gathering safe.

Throughout the weekend, seven stages featured some of the biggest names in the music genre, including Avicii, Diplo, Afrojack and Tiesto.
