Attendees on the second evening of North America's largest music festival fought traffic issues, but enjoyed a warm night of various entertainment at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

With Interstate 15 undergoing widening to four lanes just south of the venue, traffic was slowed but improved over Friday's first night when delays were 90 minutes or more.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and show producer Insomniac Productions, 135,000 people attended the activities. There were 77 people ejected from the event.

There were 305 medical calls with five people being transported to area hospitals.

LVMPD said 27 felony narcotics arrests were made and one person was arrested on a warrant. There were eight misdemeanor arrests and two misdemeanor citations were issued.

On the traffic side, four DUI arrests were made with no traffic accidents reported.

EDC Las Vegas returns tonight for the third and final night. Gates open at 7 p.m.
