Two people died after attending the Sunset Music Festival at Raymond James Stadium over the Memorial Day weekend, according to Tampa police.

A 22-year-old man was hospitalized Saturday and died Sunday, Tampa police spokesman Steve Hegarty said, and a 21-year-old woman was taken to a hospital Sunday and died Monday. In all, Tampa police said 57 people attending the event were taken to local hospitals.

"Obviously, that type of music tends to attract a certain type of fan that engages in certain types of drugs," Mayor Bob Buckhorn said Tuesday.
