As the Exit 111 Festival leaves town, Coffee County Sheriff Chad Partin reports that there were only two arrests brought into the Coffee County Jail over the entire weekend.
According to Partin, one arrest was for disorderly conduct and the other for a domestic situation. Partin said it was a "calm weekend."
One death was reported at the concert. Patrick Smith of Kentucky died during the Saturday concerts after suffering from a heart attack. Reports indicate he had a long medical history and preliminary reports indicate his death was labeled as a natural death.
While official ticket sales have not been released, it is anticipated that between 20,000 and 25,000 tickets were sold for the inaugural festival.
The concert, which will likely be an annual event, featured groups like Guns N' Roses, Lynard Skynard, Def Lepard, Slayer and ZZ Top.
