What happened at the 2021 Astroworld Festival
According to reports, at least eight people were confirmed dead and hundreds more were injured in a crowd surge toward the stage during Scott’s set on Friday night. Witnesses and officials describe the event as ‘chaotic’ as the crowd rushed toward the stage when Scott appeared. Witnesses also say it was hard to get air and mosh pits were happening in every direction in the packed Astrodome and NRG stadium with at least 50,000 in attendance.
Those who lost their lives in the crowd surge ranged in age from 14 to 27. The Carlson Law Firm’s thoughts are with their families.
In what has been described as increasingly unruly behavior that culminated around 9:15 p.m. on Friday, November 5, the 2021 Astroworld Festival teetered on the brink for most of the day. Witnesses say the festival began with mobbing entrance gates and merch booths early in the day. The show came to an early close at 10:10 p.m. once it became clear that people were dying. In its aftermath, 25 people were taken to Houston-area hospitals by ambulance, some of them in cardiac arrest. At least 13 Astroworld Festival goers were still hospitalized on Saturday, five under the age of 18.
Authorities are still investigating what went wrong at the 2021 Astroworld Festival. They are continuing to watch videos, interview witnesses and review concert protocols to determine how eight people died at the music festival. However, the Astroworld Festival investigation and injury lawsuits will likely focus on security and safety protocols.
