Fire officials said Sunday that 31 people required emergency medical attention during an overnight music festival that started Saturday at Los Angeles State Historic Park near Chinatown.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said it responded to more than two dozen medical calls at the Hard Summer music festival, which featured more than 25 electro and alternative rock acts performing on four stages at the 32-acre site.

Of the 31 calls, 16 resulted in ambulance trips to local hospitals. The names, ages, conditions and circumstances of those who received medical care were not immediately available, said Brian Humphrey, a fire department spokesman. He said the calls were not related to one particular incident, but were spread across the eight hours the event took place.
