LOS ANGELES — Authorities reported Monday that more than 80 young people were arrested at a rave party in Los Angeles, most on drugs charges.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials said paramedics treated 16 people for minor injuries at the 18th Annual Love Festival late Saturday and early Sunday and three concertgoers were taken to hospitals.

A handful of minors were arrested for using false identifications to attempt to enter the electronic music party, attended by about 4,100 people.

Partygoers had to prove they were at least 18 years old, and all were searched for contraband, especially illegal drugs.

The event drew special attention, coming just two months after the suspected drug overdose death of a 15-year-old girl who attended the much larger Electric Daisy Carnival.
