Sound and Fury Festival shut down following riot
by Festivals

A substantial brawl broke out yesterday at Sound and Fury Festival in Santa Barbara, CA, causing the rest of the show to be cancelled. The festival, which had gone on the previous two days without incident, was shut down after an attendee rode a motorcycle into the pit during Backtrack's set. Apparently security chased the motorcyclist out of the building, but not before he rode through the merch and backstage areas. Many other attendees apparently followed the action outside, where fights began to break out between them and festival security, and a full trash can was thrown at the guards.

The Ventura County Star has a story regarding the incident here, and Alternative Press has a detailed account with photos and videos here.
