The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been called to the site of what it was describing as a suspicious death at the Pemberton Music Festival Friday.

Music Fest organizers issued an emailed statement confirming that an incident had occurred in one of the festival campgrounds and that RCMP were on site, investigating.

"HUKA Entertainment is working with Pemberton Fire Rescue to care for campers who need to be relocated during the police investigation," said festival publicist Teresa Trovato.

Police tape has also gone up around some washrooms.

Festival goer Reut Amit, tweeted that security officials, told her police would be at  the washrooms all weekend and they would be cordoned off.
