Pukkelpop stage collapses

6 music fans have reportedly been killed on the opening day of Belgium’s annual Pukkelpop music festival, a three-day event that draws tens of thousands of concertgoers.

The Foo Fighters and 30 Seconds to Mars were among the bands set to perform on the festival’s opening night Thursday, but with reports indicating that as many as six fans were killed when one of the concert’s tented stages collapsed, the future of the event is uncertain.

Pukkelpop is one of the biggest music festivals in Europe. Opening day attendance figures have been estimated at around 60,000.

Very sad news.
