‘Redneck Rave’ in Kentucky ends with 48 people charged

Dozens of people face criminal charges or suffered injuries during a five-day party in south central Kentucky.

Blue Holler Offroad Park in Edmonson County hosted the event last week that organizers said would feature “mud, music, mayhem,” the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

The crowd was estimated to be in the thousands.

The sheriff told WNKY that 14 people were arrested, another 34 were cited on criminal charges that ranged from assault and strangulation to drug and alcohol possession.

Those arrested come from Michigan, Indiana, Tennessee and Missouri according to court records.

One man reportedly had his throat slit, and a woman was allegedly choked while fighting over a blanket.

In addition to live music, the rave featured a football game and a demolition derby.

Another event is scheduled in October.
