The Made in America two-day music festival over the Labor Day weekend in downtown L.A. cost $475,570 in police overtime, according to a report expected to be presented to the Los Angeles Police Commission on Tuesday.

The department racked up $4.7 million in overtime during the two-week period in which the Made in America concert took place. Overtime costs unrelated to the festival during the Labor Day weekend totaled $459,550.
