Despite the arrests, police say most of the estimated 26,000 fans who came out to hear Imagine Dragons, Iggy Azalea and Afrojack Saturday were well behaved

A total of 29 people were arrested Saturday on the first day of the Budweiser Made In America festival in downtown Los Angeles.

The majority of the arrests were for alcohol-related offenses, a spokesperson with the Los Angeles Police Department told TheWrap. Six people were also arrested for drug-related felonies.

A huge contingent of law enforcement officers is policing the event, with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department patrolling the interior and the LAPD manning the exterior of the gathering, police said. As of Sunday afternoon, no problems were reported.
