Family and friends of the pair were informed of their passing today.

Both were said to be popular and regular festival-goers.

Police expect a toxicology report to determine what killed the pair in the coming weeks.

About 3500 people attended the four-day Rabbits Eat Lettuce festival over the weekend.

It had previous been held in NSW before being shifted to Queensland's Southern Downs after a court battle with NSW Police.
