Pukkelpop Music Festival in Belgium About

Bjork, The Stone Roses, The Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, Bloc Party, The Hives, Magnetic Man and one of our old faves, Social Distortion, are among the approximately 200 excellent names entertaining 100,000 folks in 2012 at this three-day summer music festival featuring eight stages, including the "Chateau Crapule" for some interesting acts.
A stage collapsed at the Pukkelpop music festival in Belgium on Thursday, killing at least three people and injuring more than 70 others, according to the Associated Press.
A hailstorm and high winds hit Pukkelpop, held about 50 miles east of Brussels in the town of Hasselt, and demolished a main stage and leveled trees, tents and scaffolding. About 60,000 people were said to be attending the festival.
It's the latest in a series of outdoor festival stage accidents this summer, most recently in Indiana, where a stage collapsed just before a concert by the country duo Sugarland at the Indiana State Fair, killing five and injuring dozens.
Pukkelpop organizer Chokri Mahassine told the AP that "we have for now put the festival on hold until we understand the situation completely."
Pitchfork collected several Tweets from Smith Westerns frontman Cullen Omori, whose Chicago-based band was performing on the stage. "Praying no one got hurt. Wtf," he wrote.
