During Travis Scott’s 2021 Astroworld Festival, at least eight people were killed and many more were injured as a throng stormed the stage.
On Friday, November 5, as the 29-year-old “Sicko Mode” rapper was performing in Houston, Texas, the audience pushed forward, causing a mass accident.
“This is a tragic night,” Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said during a news conference early on Saturday, November 6. “We know that we had at least at least 8 confirmed fatalities tonight and we had scores of individuals that were injured here in this event.”
Peña noted that nearly 50,000 individuals attended the music festival, explaining that around 9:00 p.m. the crowd had “began to compress toward the front of the stage,” which caused panic and injuries.
But now we have even more new shocking details about what happened. Popular youtube channel Popcorn Planet just put out a video covering this story.
