After the tragic events at the Astroworld festival resulting in 10 fatalities due to a crowd crush during Travis Scott’s performance, both Scott and the event organizers are facing serious consequences. Scott issued an apology video on Instagram expressing his distress over the deaths, but eyewitnesses claim he could have halted the show to provide aid. Videos circulating online show a girl pleading with Scott to stop the show as she climbed onto the stage, only to be dismissed by Scott. The organizers are criticized for overselling tickets and poor venue planning, possibly contributing to the tragic incident.

More than 125 individuals, including attendees of the concert and families of the victims, have filed a joint lawsuit against Scott and the event organizers seeking $750 million in damages. Among the plaintiffs is the family of Axel Acosta, a 21-year-old who lost his life during the concert. According to their account, Acosta was crushed by the chaotic crowd and lay in distress for nearly 40 minutes without aid.

The lawsuit also names Apple Music, Live Nation, Epic Records, Scott’s Cactus Jack Records, and Tristar Sports & Entertainment Group as defendants. Live Nation, the promoter of Astroworld, is cooperating with authorities in the investigation and vows to address legal matters at the appropriate time to provide answers and support to the affected attendees and families.
