American rapper Travis Scott plans to refund all visitors to the Astroworld Festival after the deadly outcome of the event in Houston, Texas. That’s what insiders say to the American magazine Variety.
Scott has also cancelled his show at a festival in Las Vegas. The artist is said to be “too upset” to perform.
Last weekend at least eight festival-goers died due to the pressure at the festival devised by the rapper. There was panic and chaos in front of the festival stage, and people came under pressure.
At the entrance and at the fences, many people fainted. At least 25 people were injured and had to be taken to hospital. In total, about 50,000 people attended the festival.
Scott says he did not realize that the festival was getting completely out of hand. The rapper already indicated on Saturday that he is helping the authorities to find out how things went wrong.
