Rumor: Someone lit a flare and caused a ruckus the first night of the the Lilac Festival, after the majority of the first day's bands had finished up. It looked like some kind of fight, and ended with the four people involved parting ways under pretty rough terms. There was yelling and at least one punch got thrown.

Who's Hearing It?: Pretty much everybody has heard some variation of it at this point. Individual characters might even know who was involved in the fight: Yuki Hayashi, Gabriel Vega, Ferret, and Jasmine Kennedy (with OOC permission from their respective players).
