GRANT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Police and organizers say more than 30,000 attended and 88 arrests were made at the second Rothbury music festival in rural western Michigan.
More arrests were made during this year's four-day festival, but no fatalities were reported. Two people died last year in drug-related incidents.
WWMT-TV reports most of the arrests were drug-related, but there was at least one arrest for assault and a few thefts.
State Police First Lt. Kevin Leavitt tells WOOD-TV it "was a very calm, good crowd."
Mercy Health Partners spokeswoman Kelly Kurburski tells The Muskegon Chronicle hospital officials still were adding up the number of people admitted to area hospitals for health problems such as drug overdoses.
Rothbury wrapped up Sunday night with performances by Bob Dylan and others.
