Southside: Tent stage can't be rebuild

Friday, June 22. 2007

Shortly before our departure to Neuhausen ob Eck we got the press statement, that after devastations and the tragic accident on Thursday, the festival organization was unable to rebuild the destroyed tent stage. Therefore the whole program, which was to be hosted there has to be canceled. So we will have to do without Tokio Police Club, Ohrbooten and the Hayseed Dixies and a few more..

Storm devastates southside festival grounds

Thursday, June 21. 2007

Yesterday a storm was brewing over Neuhausen ob Eck. It raged over the grounds of the southside festival grounds and tore down one of the stages. While this tent was demolished a huge piece of metal hit through a rescue vehicle and killed a paramedic, who was sheltering inside.

Luckily, there are no more storms in the weather forecast for the weekend, also the festival organisation thinks that it will be possible to rebuilt the stage or to find an alternative. But they ask everybody to postpone the arrival for the festival to tomorrow to give themselves more time to get the grounds into shape again. Not the best promises.. Anyway. I'm still hoping for a great festival!
