CULPEPER, VA—Six people were arrested during a Culpeper County drug bust at an outdoor music festival that netted marijuana, LSD, cocaine, heroin and other drugs.

Thousands of young adults attend the rave party, known as Camp Glow, which was advertised on Facebook, according officials.

Authorities said the event was held Friday, June 15 through Sunday, June 17, in the 24000 block of Somerville Rd., near the southern end of Culpeper County.

Officers said they first responded to the party after a noise complaint was made Friday. Officers said event organizers denied them entry onto the property but complied with request to turn down the music.

More than $2,500 from narcotics distribution was seized, according to authorities.

Authorities said they found at least 200 people, occupying more than 100 tents.
