Get an attorney to evaluate your claim to determine if the event organizers of the Astroworld Festival may be liable. The events on November 5th and the performance by Travis Scott resulted in crowd surges that crushed audience members where 8 people died. Reports indicate that Houston Police Chief, Troy Finner, met with the event planner prior to the event. At that time Chief Finner expressed concerns about the safety of the event.
The Astroworld Festival held on November 5, 2021, is still under investigation. Officials are still learning what caused the crowd surge. This was a general admission event which means there is no assigned seating. General admission events in the past have had similar problems. In fact, at a previous Travis Scott event, a man fell off a three-story balcony and was paralyzed. That same year Travis Scott was arrested and charged with inciting a riot when he encouraged attendees to rush the stage.
The fact that once again concert-goers were injured is upsetting. Event organizers are required to provide for a safe environment and concert-goers have the right to expect a safe environment to enjoy the concert. Organizers are also required to ensure adequate safety and healthcare personnel are available. When event planners put profit above the safety of fans they need to be held accountable. It is clear that safety at the Astroworld Festival was not the priority of organizers.
