Drone shows massive crowds at Kentucky’s wild ‘Redneck Rave’ party

Five days of mud, music, and mayhem. This is how Redneck Rave organizers describe what they bill as “America’s wildest and craziest country party.” And with reports of a man’s throat getting slit, a woman being strangled in a fight over a blanket, and a man impaled on a branch, the massive country music festival surely showcased what wild and crazy mayhem can look like.

The five-day festival was organized in Edmonson County, a Kentucky town so small that it doesn’t have its own traffic stoplight. As the bash came to a close, local media outlets started reporting about how dozens of people had been charged with various offenses by the sheriff’s office. There were 30 charges involving drugs or alcohol-related offenses, six felony charges, and 63 traffic-related offenses.

The Edmonson County Sheriff’s Office released this drone footage to reveal the scale of the event:
