    Stage Collapses At Annual Belgian Music Festival Pukkelpop - 18 August 2011

    At least one person died and seven people have severe injuries.

    Due to the suddenly bad weather after a very sunny day two tents were blown away.

    Only in dutch, but shows a few pictures:

    A LED-structure also seems to collapse:

    The stage issues have us, at my radio station, getting nervous. We have an outdoor, all day, concert festival planned for the end of the month. We're having two stages. One for the local/regional acts, one for the Carnival of Madness Tour.

    We're already setting up contingency plans for bad weather. It'll be a rain or shine show. We've already told the promoter, since this is OUR big, summer-end, blowout, that if bad weather starts to roll in, we're making the call to postpone the show/acts, until it passes. The stage & lighting provider has already gotten on our side with all this. The stages are BOTH going to have tops that raise & lower, with tarps that can be draped off the roof to protect the stage & equipment.

    We made the call to NOT have the possibility of a disaster happening.

    If I was contractually bound to play in one of these things, I think I'd be showing up on stage with a hard hat (but without the cowboy, biker, indian and cop)
