    I’m not sure about this being a country Music Festival, it is more of a nude show, with people running around, drunk and having their private parts hanging out, lots of room for improvments

    You don’t make any sense. The video was coverage of results of a storm, and regrets after a woman was killed. What does that have to do with Americans? So we all want to be Americans eh? I’m marrying an American and there’s no way he would agree with your ignorant statement. Hahaha you’re silly.

  11. imsolost1000 says:

    you ahole. you are an absolute jerk. when some one dies it is a GREAT LOSS and misfortune. the fuckin person your talking about is a human being not a FUCKER. my only wish is that it had been you there instead of that person. you are the most ingorent disrespectfull person EVER.

  14. scarypeople8 says:

  15. markymarkwahlberg says:

    Wow. Happy I went last year and not this year. That would be some scary shit.

  16. laserheart says:

    News came in recently that Environment Canada notified them of a possible storm at 6:05.

    That was minutes after the stage was already destroyed!

    I’m feeling really bad right now for the manager of the Jam and for the family of the deceased. It’s so tough watching this great man just barely keeping it together. It must be really super tough for him knowing that he could have been there faster, gotten the warning out sooner etc. But, I don’t blame him one bit for the one person who died, all things considering.
