Astroworld 21: Hell on Earth

Trap Lore Ross is back with an in-depth look at the Astroworld Festival tragedy, which took place inside NRG Park on November 5. At least 10 people died, and hundreds were injured after a crowd crush occurred shortly after Travis Scott took the stage.

“On the night of November 5, eight people were killed in a crowd crush, and a further 11 others went into cardiac arrest, according to Harris County and Houston city officials. At least two more people died later from injuries sustained during the event, bringing the death toll to ten. The crush began around 9:15 p.m. and was declared a mass casualty event by 9:38 p.m. Over 300 people were treated for injuries at the festival related to the crowd crush. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was performed by show paramedics on those injured. Despite the presence of ambulances in the crowd, which was noticed by Scott, the performance continued for over thirty minutes past the time that the mass casualty event was declared, with Scott’s performance ending around 10:10 or 10:15 p.m.” – Wikipedia

Some of the chapters focus on previous crowd-related incidents involving Scott dating back to Lollapalooza in 2015 and a concert in 2017 that left a fan paralyzed, how the Astroworld tragedy unfolded, the reaction from those involved, the lawsuits, and a tribute to the victims.
