This is one of our worst fears. Utah music festival, Das Energi, had a stage collapse tonight due to severe weather conditions. The heavy winds resulted in the injury of one attendee. The structure fell on the patron and led the event to shut down completely.
Around 8:00 PM, a portion of the stage came crashing down during a set by DJ/Producer SHARPS. The festival grounds has been temporarily shut down and are standing by for weather updates. Thankfully, the attendee only suffered from minor cuts and bruises.
We hope the rest of the stages hold up and everyone stays safe.
Update: The weather conditions have improved and the festival is back on!
