Even though an estimated 34,000 people flocked downtown for the first day of the Made In America music festival, less than 30 were arrested without any reports of serious incidents.The Los Angeles Police Department reported only 29 arrests yesterday, with 23 of those being misdemeanor violations involving alcohol. The remainder were felony arrests related to narcotics. Overall, a spokesman with the LAPD told the LA Times that the festival-goers "were largely peaceful and well-behaved."

No serious injuries or medical emergencies were reported from yesterday's events. Hopefully day 2 of the festival will manage to go off without a hitch, but we all know how wild you guys get during John Mayer shows so we'll cross our fingers.
