Norwegian music lovers were barred entry from parts of the Hove Festival area after a man collapsed and died on the main stage.

A man who was double-checking the security set-up at the Hove Festival near Arendal in Norway collapsed on the main stage, local police officers confirmed on Twitter on Wednesday.

Despite attempts from onlookers to come to the man's aid, he was soon after declared dead.

"There has been no crime, and it is not an accident," police spokeswoman Gunn Lieng told the local Agderposten newspaper.

The police have said they believe the man died from a health condition.
