Lil Baby was a no-show at a festival in Vancouver. Naturally, the crowd rioted

Crowds had gathered for hours on Sunday at the Breakout Festival at the PNE Amphitheatre in Vancouver. But when it was announced that Lil Baby was too ill to perform–a message that came about 30 minutes before showtime–portions of the crowd decided to riot. You know, because it’s what you do, right?

About a thousand people got involved targeting things like food and drink tents, vending machines, vendor kiosks, and garbage bins.

The good news is that things were cleared up in about 25 minutes. Seven people were arrested.
