Don't know how many countries have covered this story, but if you haven't already heard it: Thursday 18th of august a huge unexpected storm has hit the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium, one of the biggest festivals in Europe. Lots of stuff blown away, tents from camping grounds blown away, trees ripped out of the ground, flew into full stage tents, stage tents collapsing... This has resulted in 5 deaths and numerous serious injuries (a few people still fighting for their lives). The rest of the festival has been cancelled now (which seems ... appropriate). A bunch of my friends were there... I'm glad that they are all OK crazy footage going around: Storm hitting during Skunk Anansie, who had to stop performing abruptly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9w3ZsAb5ikA on the camping grounds: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIGiekIW418 @ 1:58 pay attention to the right to see one of the lighting towers fall over, somehow the camera man didn't notice that. party tent collapsing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okyx6HbpHmI tree falling on different party tent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F7F14moHUI tree falling through another party tent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i52kwAzlOwU ...... It's my favourite festival, been there 5 times, I'm always looking forward to see the line-up. If it doesn't interest me, I'm not going .... thank god for those many bands I didn't want to see, I guess. Thanks Foo Fighters ... that's a li'l joke right there I just told myself to laugh away my shock lol amiright ..... fuck
