More than 200 people were injured and dozens arrested during a two-day electronic music festival and rave at the Coliseum and Exposition Park.

Officials said 185,000 people showed up for the 14th annual Electric Daisy Carnival on Friday and Saturday.

People were hurt when they rushed the barriers, trying to get in without a $75 admission ticket, police said. The extent of those injuries was not clear, but nearly half were hospitalized because of drug or alcohol problems.

Police said 63 people were arrested for possession and sale of narcotics, trespassing and drinking in public.
