PLASA Deeply Saddened by Sugarland Concert Accident
2011-08-15

PLASA is deeply saddened by the accident in Indiana at the Sugarland Concert. We cannot comment on the specifics of what happened there. We simply do not know the details of what happened, and understand that there are ongoing investigations into what caused the collapse and the response to it.

As the largest international trade association for the entertainment technology industry, PLASA has been writing voluntary American National Standards to enhance the safety of the entertainment industry for nearly two decades. While PLASA has no information and cannot comment on the equipment, procedures or protocols used at the Indiana State Fair Grounds, PLASA developed and approved American National Standards E1.2 and E1.21 that pertain to outdoor structures. These two voluntary standards may apply to the structures erected on the Indianapolis State Fair Grounds, although PLASA cannot say whether the standards were followed in Indiana.
