Lawsuits Filed Against Travis Scott, Astroworld Organizers
Some of those directly impacted by the chaos at Astroworld have already filed suit against Travis Scott and other organizers of the festival, which boasted an attendance of 50,000 people.
The footage from that night, posted on social media by countless concertgoers, is hard to watch. Some videos show a complete lack of compassion by camera operators and performers—the show continued as chaos unfolded below.
Scott’s history of inciting violence and disorderly conduct at shows has been brought into the national spotlight. In fact, he has faced legal trouble on two separate occasions for encouraging fans to rush the stage, once in 2015 and again in 2017.
Who Can Be Held Responsible?
While the exact cause of the deadly crowd surge remains under investigation by law enforcement, our attorneys at Robins Cloud LLP are also working to get answers.
According to witness testimony and footage of the event, a lack of security and poor crowd control played a large part in why event staff could not contain the crowd surge once it started. Current Astroworld lawsuits have, therefore, been filed against the event organizers, including Scott himself.
