Default Pukkelpop Drama

WTF!?! This is terrible...

A thunderstorm caused total chaos at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium. One stage collapsed and a couple of trees went down. Reports say that there are 6 people dead and many injured.
They canceled the rest of the shows this evening. (including the Foo Fighters)

I really hope every one is going to be ok...

The official report at the moment is 1 dead and 7 badly injured. That is stil too much.
There will be a press conference in 10 minutes.

Little update. 3 confirmed deaths and 60 injured people. A presentor stated there might be music played tonight but that depends on what the artists want to do. Since Foos would play from 23.00-01.00 they might actually still play. Honestly I doubt it because I cant imagine what that show must be like.

I still have my doubts because its not very Foo like to keep 50000-60000 people just standing on a field. Yet in these circumstances I totaly see why they would not play tonight. Indeed very very sad.

I'd be surprised if they'd be given the go-ahead anyway (thinking insurance reasons)...also i think it'd be more respectful to those that died not to play, that goes for all bands.

How awful though, after what happened in Indiana this is really scary. I worry for those boys

My, I remember in the 80s a belgium stadium crashed (overcrowded if I remember well) killing dozens. So sad.
