MIAMI, Fla. — Miami Police say they dispersed crowds violating social distancing guidelines during David Guetta’s coronavirus relief concert in Miami.

The Miami Herald reports there were no arrests made when police broke up the groups listening on the sidewalks below the two-hour rooftop concert played by the DJ on Saturday. Florida has prohibited gatherings of more than 10 people during the pandemic.

Some residents in downtown Miami were able to see the concert from their balconies and the relief benefit also drew in over 9 million views on Facebook.

Guetta says the concert raised $700,000 for four organizations, including Feeding South Florida and the World Health Organization.
