Someone died aboard the Xingolati cruise this past weekend. The passenger’s name is being held for privacy concerns, but it appears to have been a drug overdose.

A passenger aboard the traveling festival Xingolati is believed to have died onboard, apparently of a drug overdose. A spokesperson for the cruise declined to comment, telling Relix “No comment, to protect privacy and because there’s an ongoing investigation.” There is no word yet on the identity of the deceased passenger.

The investigation into what happened aboard the ship delayed passenger disembarkation for five hours on Monday morning. [Relix 10/18/05]

Sirius will be broadcasting The White Stripes and O.A.R. over Halloween weekend. I don’t have it anymore so I wonder if there’ll be a free stream somewhere on the web. Also, The White Stripes frontman is joining up with Brendan Benson to start the Raconteurs. That should be very interesting to see…

  1. I spoke to a few people who were on the boat and it’s believed that it was a female who died from a methadone overdose. apparently she got into her boyfriends pill collection and took way too much. We can’t have people dying on a boat of 1500. They raised hell when 2 died at bonnaroo among 100,000. Bad for the jam community. Let’s all be a little more careful.

  3. Ben: I couldn’t agree more. I was at Bonnaroo 2004 and it made it hard to come back when that was the focus of the news surrounding the event. It’s just inevitable when you get that many people together, but it’s still hugely unfortunate.
