More than 90 people at a Connecticut concert featuring Chance the Rapper were hospitalized Friday, according to a report in The Hartford Courant.

The concert, Hot 93.7’s Hot Jam at Xfinity Theater in Hartford, also featured Kyle, PnB Rock and ANoyd; an estimated 21,000 people attended. Most of those hospitalized were severely intoxicated, and some were found unconscious, according to Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley. Officers also charged 50 people with underage drinking.

“A ‘typical’ concert is around 20-30 transports. 60 would be very bad. We had 70 once and 90 last night,” Foley told The Courant.

Foley said that more than 70 police officers and a medical staff were assigned to the event.

He later wrote on Twitter:
