Musicians give to stage collapse relief 

A memorial for victims days after the accident. - TED SOMERVILLE

Twelve weeks ago, a strong gust of wind brought country rockers Sugarland's stage rigging at the Indiana State Fair down onto the crowd below. In the ensuing days, seven people passed away and 43 were treated for injuries resulting from the accident.

In the coming week, deadlines to apply for different funds, tortes and aid are passing for the victims of this tragedy. However, a different kind of aid remains for those affected.

Hoosier musicians have banded together to show support for those affected through the healing power of music. Indyrok.com and MusicBenefit.us put together a 48-track album featuring tracks from local musicians. The entire compilation is available for purchase for $10, which goes directly to the Indiana State Fair Remembrance Fund.

Artists that contributed to the project include (but are absolutely not limited to) Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band, Andy Hollinden, Grey Granite and J. Brookinz, Neon Love Life, Kate Lamont, Cara Jean Wahlers, and many, many more.

Download the compilation here.
