Final report: No deaths, 24 hospitalizations at Electric Daisy Carnival


Twenty-four people were hospitalized over the course of the three-day Electric Daisy Carnival electronic music festival, according to final numbers released Friday.

A spokeswoman for Insomniac Events, which organized the event, said paramedics handled 164 medical calls and sent seven people to University Medical Center on the final day of the event, which ended Monday morning.

All of the people who had been hospitalized had been released by Friday, she said. The Clark County Coroner's office confirmed Friday that they knew of no deaths linked to the concert.

More than 200,000 people attended the weekend event at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, which was hailed a success, particularly in the wake of the tour's Dallas event last month in which two people died.
