When people go to concerts, they’re looking to have a good time and enjoy some of their favorite music. At the worst, they might expect to drink too much or lose something they brought with them. However, the people who attended the Widespread Panic concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre got a big surprise when flying porta potties flung human waste all over their cars…

Flying Porta Potties From A Microburst

During the Widespread Panic concert that took place on June 22nd, a microburst hit a parking lot outside the amphitheater. For those who don’t know what a microburst is, the National Weather Service defines it as such:

A microburst is a localized column of sinking air (downdraft) within a thunderstorm and is usually less than or equal to 2.5 miles in diameter.

Unfortunately in this situation, the burst sent six porta potties flying fifty feet across the parking lot. Not only did this fling human waste all across the cars, but some vehicles even suffered damage after the toilets crashed into them.

Thankfully, no one was inside any of the units when they went flying.

A Very Crappy Experience

While you might expect this would cause a prompt reaction from the venue managers, it took the staff at least 90 minutes to react to the smelly situation. However, the security guards that appeared did not want to deal with the mess. They insisted that the company that provided the toilets had to clean the mess. So, after a few more hours, that company’s workers appeared with power washers to clean the toilets.

Unfortunately, this appears to have only made the situation in the parking lot worse. In a complaint filed by concert attendee Andrew Mowery, he explained:

“[The power washers] exacerbated the biohazard by creating a feces and urine slurry that covered a large area where patrons both waited in line for use of the portable toilets, but also accessed the entire lot… The lot remained unsanitized for the entire weekend, and the stench was strong into Sunday, when significant rains apparently spread the biohazard even farther across the lot than thousands of feet”

Furthermore, it appears the toilets weren’t secured to the ground prior to the incident. Mowery, whose car was was hit with a porta potty in the incident, is now considering legal action.
