Pukkelpop is getting the weather bad now. Apparently a tent collapsed, a tree fell down and a sound-tower got knocked over so they've cancelled everything for today.

That's crazy, I know these stages are meant for temporary festivals and whatnot, but they should still be able to with stand heavy weather. And it's not that it isn't structurally sound, to me it looks like it the stages have to be secured down better.
