One man reportedly died and more than twenty people were hospitalized over the weekend while attending the Hard Summer festival at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif.

According to ABC 7, Andrew Cole Click, 19, was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead at 11:45 p.m. on Sunday (Aug. 5), with an autopsy pending to determine his cause of death.

In addition, twenty-three people were reportedly hospitalized during the two-day event that featured sets from Marshmello, Flosstradamus, Rick Ross, Travis Scott, Diplo and Trippie Redd. The hospitalizations were for a variety of medical issues, with two women still receiving treatment at press time. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department -- which could not be reached for additional comment at press time -- also reported that eleven people were arrested, primarily for drug offenses.

The parents of a 22-year-old college student sued Live Nation last year after their daughter died of an apparent drug overdose at the 2016 Hard Fest at the Fontana Speedway.

A spokesperson for the festival could not be reached for comment at press time.
