Blame Game of Astroworld

In a statement, Travis Scott’s spokesperson said that rappers didn’t have the authority to stop the concert. The executive producer and the concert producer have the authority to stop the performance, the spokesperson added. Houston police department also said in a statement that even police didn’t have the authority to stop the concert. Only those who were in charge had the authority to stop the concert.

Reasons of Tragedy at Astroworld

About 50,000 people were present at the Astroworld festival. All 50,000 people started pushing towards the central stage where Travis Scott was performing. People died because of cardiac arrest and pressure caused by the surge which led to the shortage of air available. Also, there was no proper light in the stadium for the crowd. There was no emergency exit gate available for the crowd. Astroworld organizers didn’t have a plan to avoid the surge despite the crowd surge that already happened in 2019. And if management took the decision on time deaths could be below 9. The age of dead bodies is 10 to 27. All are teenagers and young boys.
