Festival-goers have been given antibiotics after an 18-year-old man became critically ill with meningitis.
Public Health England (PHE) told the Bristol Post it was investigating the diagnosis at Boardmasters festival in Newquay, Cornwall.
The teenager is a student at St Brendan's Sixth Form College in Bristol, which saw two cases of meningococcal infection last spring.
Festival organisers said he had been unwell in the days before the event.
Deputy director of health protection at PHE's South West Health Protection Team, Mike Wade, said his thoughts were with the family of the critically ill patient.
"We want to reassure people that all appropriate public health actions are being taken," he said.
"It is highly unlikely that this case is related to the previous cases at St Brendan's which occurred 14 months ago.
"The student has not attended the college since the end of the summer term at the beginning of July."
