Fans tried to catch Travis Scott’s concert but artist continued to act – Culture


Despair gripped thousands of people in the audience at Astroworld – an annual festival organized by Travis Scott – while Kylie Jenner’s companion seemed not to care about everything that was going on in front of him. Moments after the beginning of the performance, Travis had on his horizon a sea of ​​people in distress, some in cardiac arrest, ambulances among the fans and screams of despair were heard, as evidenced by many videos now released on social networks.

A post, however faded, by socialite Kylie Jenner, who is pregnant with her second child, showed an ambulance passing through the crowd of fans watching the rapper’s concert.

According to the authorities, the crowd – which exceeded 50,000 people – moved forward and put pressure on those who were further along and, around 9 pm, when Travis Scott took the stage, the situation took on tragic proportions.

“Whoever was in front began to be crushed.” “The crowd was moving and pushing so hard that several people were falling and causing others to fall,” DJ Billy Nasser revealed to Houston Chronicle.

Other images that are now starting to be widely disseminated on the Internet show several fans climbing onto the platforms where the festival was being filmed and asking for the concert to stop immediately.

Another of the victims, 27-year-old Danish Baig, died while trying to help a family member during the mess. “My brother died while trying to save my sister-in-law from these horrendous acts being committed against her,” wrote Basil Baig on Facebook. “I’m speechless and in a real trauma because of this event. I was there and I couldn’t save my brother. People beat and pushed and didn’t care about anyone’s life.”
