Festival organizers are offering condolences to friends and family of a 20-year-old California woman who died this week after collapsing early Monday in a shuttle bus waiting area at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

A statement from Insomniac calls the death of Kenani Kaimuloa of Temecula, California, a tragedy.

It also notes that the cause of her death hasn’t been determined.

Kaimuloa’s father, Dane Kaumuloa, blames heat stroke and dehydration, but acknowledges that he was told his daughter also took drugs during the three-night festival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Clark County coroner in Las Vegas said Friday that Kenani Kaimuloa died late Wednesday, and that it’ll take several weeks to obtain blood test results and rule on her cause of death.

The Clark County coroner in Las Vegas said Friday that Kenani Kaimuloa died late Wednesday, and that it’ll take several weeks to obtain blood test results and rule on her cause of death.

Her father, Dane Kaimuloa of Temecula, California, blames heat stroke and dehydration, not drugs.

He says he doesn’t want Kenani Kaimuloa to be remembered as a drug-user.
