Yesterday marked the second annual Astroworld festival, Travis Scott’s massive, Houston, Texas-based event. Unfortunately, it seems that fans were a bit too eager to get in, as a stampede before the gates officially opened caused three people to be hospitalised.
The stampede itself is pretty clear to see in a video posted to Travis Scott’s Instagram, with the caption: “RAGERS SET TONE WHEN I COME OUT TONIGHT. BE SAFE RAGE HARD.”
After crowd barriers fall, thousands of people begin running into the grounds and it’s pretty easy to see how some got trampled.
