(Radio.com) Nearly two years ago, seven people were killed at the Indiana State Fair when the stage collapsed. Country duo Sugarland were about to take the stage on August 13, 2011, when winds of 60 miles per hour forced them to postpone their set. Minutes later the stage fell, injuring dozens and killing seven in attendance.

While the victims have received $11 million in damages, Indianapolis news station WRTV reports that a court date to further investigate the incident has been set for next February.

The trial will decide if Sugarland and the concert production companies at the Indiana State Fair should be held accountable for the stage collapse.

The duo, made up of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, have made several depositions but could be called in for additional testimony before the close of 2013. Several families of the victims have already filed lawsuits against Sugarland, claiming they were negligent in the stage collapse. Find out what the band had to say.
