Eight people tragically died at the festival with hundreds more injured after a crowd surge took place.

Since the news broke, tributes have been pouring in for those who lost their lives…

The crowd surge began around 9 PM on Friday during the rapper’s headline set at the site of the former Houston Six Flags park.

Crowds pressed towards the front of the stage as the rapper performed, causing panic to break out.

As the crowd surge grew, people started to get injured and crushed, the BBC reports.

An estimated 50,000 people were in attendance for the 2-day festival, which has since been canceled.

Around 300 people were treated for injuries such as cuts and bruises.

And sadly, 8 people lost their lives during the incident.

Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Larry Satterwhite, told the Associated Press that they “had several people down on the ground.”

“Suddenly we had several people down on the ground, experiencing some type of cardiac arrest or some type of medical episode,” he said. “And so we immediately started doing CPR, and moving people right then, and that’s when I went and met with the promoters, and Live Nation, and they agreed to end early in the interest of public safety.”

An attendee of the festival told KHOU that if “you didn’t jump, you would fall.”

“In the front, there was a lot of jumping. If you didn’t jump, you would fall and get trampled on, definitely. The crowd is pushing back and forth. If you were even a little tired, you were going to fall.”

After the events of the festival began to emerge, Travis Scott issued a statement.

In the statement, he claimed he was “absolutely devastated” by the incident and that the police looking into it have his “total support.”

“I’m absolutely devastated by what took place last night. My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival,” he wrote.

“Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into the tragic loss of life.”

Scott’s partner, Kylie Jenner, also issued a statement about the festival in which she defended him.

In the statement, Jenner said she wanted to make it clear that they “weren’t aware of any fatalities” until “after the show.”

“I am sending my deepest condolences to all the families during this difficult time and will be praying for the healing of everyone who has been impacted,” she said.

“And also for Travis who I know cares deeply for his fans and the Houston community, I want to make it clear we weren’t aware of any fatalities until the news came out after the show, and in no world would have continued filming or performing.”

Some are holding Travis Scott somewhat accountable for the tragedy.

Including one festival-goer who is suing Scott as well as Drake for the events of the festival.

Kristian Paredes has filed a complaint accusing Scott, Drake, Live Nation Entertainment Inc., Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation of negligence, the Daily Mail reports.

He is suing for over $1million for the injuries he sustained and to cover any medical expenses.

The outlet reports that the complaint claims that Drake “came on stage alongside Travis Scott and helped incite the crowd.”

It was reported that the lawsuit states that Paredes claims the injuries and deaths were the results of “negligence, carelessness and recklessness.”

It also states that “many begged security guards hired by Live Nation Entertainment for help, but were ignored.”

This is a stark contrast from other videos that have been surfacing involving different artists who have stopped their concerts mid-show in order to make sure their fans are safe.

From Harry Styles and Kendrick Lamar to BlackPink and The 1975, multiple other artists have seen incidents happening in front of them and have stopped their show to help out the audience.

And one particular artist has recently gone viral for one of her previous reactions.

And it’s none other than Adele.

Thousands of her fans were attendance at one of her concerts when she noticed that someone had fainted in the middle somewhere…

So mid-song, Adele told the band to stop and called security and medical personnel to go and check on her to make sure she was okay.

Comments poured in, commending her for her actions…
