A 22-year old Queensland man has died after overdosing at the Lost Paradise music festival at Glenworth Valley near Gosford.

The unidentified man was taken to Gosford hospital and pronounced dead at 8pm.

The Lost Paradise festival promoted the event as a Drug-Free Event and said it had a “zero tolerance policy relating to drug possession. 50 people at the event were handed court notices for drug possession. A man and woman still remain in hospital after taking unknown substances.
