The Budweiser Made in America Festival is bringing top acts to urban centers. Last night's Downtown Los Angeles festival debut had some trouble.
According to the Associated Press, police arrested 29 people at the festival including six for felony narcotics.
Saturday's lineup included performances from Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Kendrick Lamar, Afrojack and Imagine Dragons.
The concert is expected to hold 35,000 people at Grand Park this weekend. Founded by Jay Z in 2012, the festival started and also continues on in Philadelphia.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti approved the event for Labor Day weekend and told the Los Angeles Times, "Los Angeles has needed a great music festival for so long. But people leave here to go elsewhere, either Coachella or they go to Austin for South by Southwest. One of the things I campaigned on — it was time to make L.A. a cultural destination too."
The AP reports that Live Nation spent $500,000 to cover setup and security costs alone.
Tonight, the festival continues as Kanye West and John Mayer will play and close the show.
