Just before 5pm police were advised a man was receiving treatment from paramedics at Stereosonic at Bonython Park in Adelaide.
He was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital where he later died.
South Australian police said an initial investigation indicated the man had consumed an illicit drug and was in possession of a number of pills.
Police released images of two orange-coloured pills with a dollar-sign stamp that a spokesman said were found in the man’s possession.
Earlier in the day, another man was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital at noon after he suffered from a medical episode. Police believe he also consumed an illicit substance and he remains in a critical condition in hospital.
It is the second death at the Stereosonic festival after Sydney pharmacist Sylvia Choi died in Sydney last week.
In a statement on its Facebook page on Saturday festival organisers said they were “devastated to hear of another loss to drugs”.
They said images of two orange pills “may be related” to the death, and warned “of the risks associated with taking any type of illicit substance”.
“We are imploring people to see the dangers of the situation, enjoy the day and please be safe,” the statement read.
“Our first aid team and staff are here to help.”
