Three Die During Stage Collapse At Belgium’s Pukkelpop

A collapsed tent at the fest

This is a fucking tragedy. Just like my life. But at least I am still breathing. I feel bad for the three people who now aren’t because they attended the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium.

They were killed when stage equipment, towers, a tent and a tree collapsed after a wind and hail storm tore through Hasselt earlier today.

In addition, more than 70 people were injured and the festival was halted, with as many as 60,000 attendees having left the mud-filled grounds, reports the Associated Press.

Festival organizers told reporters “we have for now put the festival on hold until we understand the situation completely.”

Pukkelpop was to feature sets from the Deftones, Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon, Suicidal Tendencies, Apocalyptica, and Within Temptation.
