Chicago's music fest-goers may have rioted and raged this weekend, but they didn't get into much trouble with the law, police officials said.

Just two Riot Fest attendees were arrested during the weekend's concerts in Humboldt Park, CPD officials said. And both arrests were misdemeanor arrests, which are less-severe than felony arrests.

Police said one person was arrested for trespass, and another for soliciting unlawful business, over the course of the entire event. The concert brought nearly eighty bands to the city's West Side, including Fall Out Boy and the Replacements, to perform between Friday afternoon and Sunday night.

The Chicago Tribune reported that at least six people were injured during the music fest.
