Belgian festival cancelled, five people dead due to weather

I used to go to this festival about a decade ago, but found that in recent years the focus of the attendees had shifted from the music to the ambiance:

3 tents collapsed, as did one tower and a tree. So far, 5 people are confirmed dead and almost a dozen are critically injured. Needless to say the festival has been cancelled.

It just hit home: two of the confirmed deceased are a girl from my street and her boyfriend. I can't say I was friends with either but I knew her since she was a toddler.

 

My former band's drummer also went but he made it home safe and sound. I guess a lot of people I know as friends or acquaintances were there, so I am waiting for more news.

I'm sure folks heard of a similar tragedy last week in Indiana--stage collapse during a storm that killed five or six people. My daughter had planned to attend that show to see Sara Bareilles, but she decided not to at the last minute.
