LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- A dozen people were transported to hospitals overnight and 22 arrests were made as another record-breaking crowd of 134,000 attended the second night of the Electric Daisy Carnival.

For the second night, show producer Insomniac said 134,000 electric music fans attended the overnight party at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Metro police reported that their officers made 19 felony arrests, all for narcotics. In addition, 18 misdemeanor citations were issued, two misdemeanor arrests were made and there was one driving under the influence alcohol arrest.

Metro also reported five traffic accidents and three traffic citations issued.

There were 311 medical calls during the night and a dozen people were taken to the hospital.

A patron at the first night of the party, 24-year-old Montgomery Tsang of California, died early Saturday morning at UMC after collapsing in a parking lot at the speedway. The results of his autopsy have not been released by the Clark County coroner's office.

A release from Insomniac's publicity company described Day 2:

"The second night of the Electric Daisy Carnival has come to a thundering close after welcoming a sold-out crowd to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The dusk-till-dawn festivities featured more than 65 musical acts, including up-and-coming artists from this year’s Discovery Project. This year, winners were expanded beyond aspiring DJ/producers to include winning selections from the art installation, stage, and costume design categories.

"Adding to the completely immersive setting of the festival grounds, more than 30 carnival rides, five Ferris wheels, and 20 large-scale art installations—including the re-imagined Electric Daisy—encouraged fans to explore and engage with their surroundings. The 125-foot structure featured LED lights and white petals spanning 45 feet as fans danced beneath its warm glow. The bassCON stage unveiled a brand new design that engulfed the DJ booth at the mouth of a 65-foot-tall, apocalyptic Cyclops, surrounded by 26 large, graffiti-stained steel containers and crushed automobiles."

The third and final night of the annual party starts at 7 this evening. 

Interstate 15 has been clogged with traffic each evening and early morning as party goers go to or leave the speedway.

Metro warns that Monday morning traffic is expected to be the worst because of the rush hour traffic.
