Ambulance crews were called earlier today to a hotel near Widnes after a guest complained of respiratory problems.
The 22-year-old, who has not been named, was taken to Whiston Hospital where his condition deteriorated and he died a short time later.
It's believed he'd been at Creamfields and Cheshire Police say they're looking into the circumstances.
A spokeswoman said: "The cause of the man's death at this time is presently being treated as unexplained, including whether the man's death is in any way drug related."
