BOSTON (WHDH/CNN) - Dozens of concertgoers were hospitalized during a show by superstar DJ Avicii in Boston on Wednesday night.

Local media put the number of patients anywhere between 30 and 80.

Massachusetts General Hospital said it received 13 patients between the ages of 16 and 19.

All of the patients are being evaluated.

Authorities said most patients had a problem with dehydration, drugs and alcohol.

Dozens of ambulances lined up outside the TD Garden venue as crowds spilled into the streets after the concert.

Other ambulances zoomed off, red lights blaring, as frazzled parents waited.

One witness described the scene.

"I think it was dehydration or something like that but I'm not too sure. But there have been a bunch of ambulances showing up and taking people away on stretchers," said Will Samuels, a witness.

Avicii, the Swedish artist behind the hit song Wake Me Up, performed at the venue as part of his True tour.
