The 15th annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival is currently underway, but not without a few issues with authorities as it's being reported that more than 100 people have been arrested or cited.

The numbers released by Coffee County Sherriff's Office came in by mid-afternoon on Thursday, less than one day into the festival. 

The arrests that were made mostly consisted of disorderly conduct and illegal possession of drugs, including Molly and LSD.

There have not been any medical emergencies reported, which according to Coffee County Sheriffs' Office spokesman Lucky Knott, is a relief.

"We've been lucky we haven't had any so far, but we are on guard because of the expected high temps and heat expected Saturday and Sunday," Knott said. "If you're out here, please, please, please stock up on fluids and stay hydrated, folks."

Taking place in Tennessee, Bonnaroo is known to be one of the hottest festivals of the summer, with temperatures reaching over 100 degrees.
