According to The Washington Post, at least seven out of ten victims were close together when things got out of hand at Travis Scott’s concert. This happened in a small section enclosed on three sides by metal fences. That part is seen as “the epicentre of chaos and misery” during the festival.
In his first interview after the Astroworld drama, Travis said he didn’t learn what exactly happened until a day later. He would not have heard the screams for help during his performance. “It’s just bizarre. I’m the type of artist who stops the show as soon as I hear something like that, ” he said. “You want to make sure the fans get the attention they deserve. Every time I went through something like that, I stopped the show to make sure everyone was okay. I go by the energy of the fans, but I just didn’t hear it .”
Travis, who is currently facing many lawsuits, is currently in talks with several mayors to set up a new safety protocol for major events. This is to ensure that a similar drama never happens again. TMZ has obtained an overview of the objectives. “We will fully focus on new technologies and innovations that offer ways to address these challenges,” reads one of the objectives.
