GREENFIELD — No foul play is suspected in the death of a 60-year-old man at the Wormtown Music Festival at Camp Kee-Wanee on Sunday.

Albert Boyle was discovered unresponsive at about 8 a.m., according to Northwestern District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Mary Carey. He was from Riverhead, N.Y.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

Carey said Greenfield Police and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the district attorney’s office responded to the scene Sunday. Greenfield Police Lt. William Gordon deferred all questions to Carey.

The family-friendly Wormtown Music Festival is an annual weekend-long event near the Green River. This was the 21st annual festival, held Friday through Sunday.
