Police said they dispersed crowds violating social distancing guidelines during David Guetta’s coronavirus relief concert in Miami.

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

While some residents in downtown Miami were able to see the concert from their balconies, the relief benefit also drew in over 9 million views on Facebook and nearly 2 million views on YouTube.

The concert raised $700,000, Guetta said in a Facebook post Sunday. The money will go towards four organizations, including Feeding South Florida and the World Health Organization’s Solidarity Response Fund.

Florida's coronavirus caseload reached 26,314 with 774 deaths as of Sunday evening, the state's Health department said.

An estimated 8,000 people listened to David Guetta's live DJ set he performed from downtown Miami. The French DJ speaks one-on-one with NBC 6 about his coronavirus relief fundraiser.
