According to the article the festival has been operating there for years.

Wouldn’t be surprised if they started off small and got bigger and nobody looked twice at the staging plans.

"Man (killed by electricity) to death"... A little redundant for my taste.

Personally I would have titled it "Man Dies after being Electrocuted on stage at music festival"

It's more provocative AND technically correct. Win-Win!

I agree it seemed awkward but electrocute does not seem to imply death as the only out come. "...electrocuted and died" would have been better journalism.

Tragic and i do feel bad for his family.
