A 24-year old man and 22-year-old woman's body were found in a tent at the Rabbits Eat Lettuce Festival around 9:30am yesterday morning.
Festival-goers Lizard Aroyan, Julia Hughes and Jake McKenny have expressed their shock after two young people were found dead at Rabbits Eat Lettuce festival near Warwick on the Southern Downs.
A toxicology report is being prepared for the coroner.
The NSW government came under fire in recent months for tough new rules around festival safety, which included sometimes vastly increasing the number of police and emergency services required to be on-site - and paid for by event organisers in a "user pays" model.
The festival's organisers said in a statement they wanted to pass on their condolences to the pair's family and friends.
"Our thoughts and concerns are predominantly for their wellbeing and privacy during this time", the statement read.
'It is absolutely heartbreaking to lose some handsome souls that we consider part of our extended family.
"We have highly trained first-aid, professional paramedics working 24 hours during throughout the festival and an on-call doctor onsite", the statement said. "It is appropriate that we give them the chance to do their work and respect the deceased family's right to privacy and avoid any speculation".
Police are investigating a possible drug overdose.
'There definitely was a police presence in there, but by no means was it as intense as it would of being like if it were in NSW.
Aside from music, Rabbits Eat Lettuce also had events as wide-ranging as body painting, cacao heart ceremony, chakra dance, chakra yoga, workshops on produce electro-music and authentic relations, and a series of talks including the evolution of consciousness. We can dissolve the social barriers and dance together'.
Ms Hughes said she didn't blame the festival, which was relocated from Kippenduff to Elbow Valley for the first time this year after a court battle with New South Wales Police. "We've never had a death", he told media prior to this event.
