LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The summer’s two-day Made In American music festival in downtown racked up more than $475,000 in police overtime, according to a new report.
The report will be presented to the Los Angeles Police Commission Tuesday morning.
During a normal two-week period, LAPD overtime usually tallies between $3.6 and $3.8 million when there are no large events.
During the two-week period of the festival, which occurred on Aug. 30 and 31 and also included Labor Day, overtime costs amounted to $4.7 million. The overtime pay associated with the Labor Day holiday alone was $459,550.
Made in America’s promoter, Live Nation, agreed to pay the city a flat fee of $500,000 to reimburse services, which also included the public works and transportation departments, during the festival.
The event attracted 70,000 fans.
