Travis Scott: Astroworld Disaster

Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival left ten dead and hundreds wounded after the crowd surged to the center stage where thirty year-old Scott was performing. On the evening of Nov. 5 Travis scott took center stage at the Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas to be streamed by Apple Music. 

Scott began with a fiery image of an eagle as flames shot up around him, chaos and excitement caused fans pushed forward amongst and over each other to get closer resulting in an innocent concert turning deadly. 

Prior to the show, fans surged security breaking down metal detectors and walls, leaving the concert thousands over capacity prior to the tragedy. Travis Scott was reported to have encouraged fans to sneak in in a tweet reading, “Naw, and we’re still slipping the wild ones in” months prior to the event, the tweet has since been removed.

 Travis Scott continued with his set for 70 minutes in the night as fans died in the crowd below him and hundreds were injured, the youngest victim being 9-year-old Ezra Blount. The event was open to all ages with parental supervision.

Accounts of the horrific event recall trampling over a sea of bodies with no control, simply gasping for air trying to stay above the crowd. Differing accounts recall a good time with no clue of the horrors happening in other parts of the crowd. 

Paramedics worked through the night working to resuscitate and rescue many from the crowd surrounding, EMTs could be clearly seen in a video posted to Travis Scott’s partner, Kylie Jenner’s Instagram story. The events of the night were no doubt avoidable, as a video surfaced of one woman climbing on to a podium where a man was streaming the show, she begs to stop the show as “someone had died” while the man simply ignores her and kicks her off the stand.

Scott is now being faced with hundreds of lawsuits claiming negligence of hiring staff and more. Travis Scott is receiving the blame for the undoubtedly avoidable tragedy, primarily for having continued with his music while the crowd suffered.
