CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) - Authorities have identified the 24-year-old man who died at an annual southern Illinois outdoor music festival.

The Hardin County coroner says the cause of death for Cory Collins of Harrisburg is pending the results of toxicology tests. 

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports Hardin was found dead at the Hog Rock campground during the Gathering of the Juggalos. That's a weekend festival based around the band Insane Clown Posse.

Hardin County Coroner Jessica Cullum says her office received a call about the death on Friday. Illinois State Police are investigating.

The festival that runs through Sunday is expected to draw about 10,000 people.

The event in past years has resulted in unrest, including in 2011 when one attendee drowned while trying to swim in the Ohio River.
