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.

The Lost Paradise website clearly stated:

You know the law, you know the score. We operate a zero tolerance policy relating to drug possession.

• Any persons found with illegal drugs or illicit substances will be refused entry to the Venue and the Event. Lost Paradise is a drug-free event.

• Possession, sale or use of illegal drugs or illicit substances is strictly prohibited at the Venue and the Event. Any persons found with illegal drugs or illicit substances in their possession will be removed from the Venue and subject to Police action.
