At least three people were injured on Saturday after a stampede broke out at rapper Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival in Houston.
People reports that loads of fans rushed in when the gates opened at noon, which is when three people were knocked down and sustained minor leg injuries. 28-year-old Scott documented the scene on Instagram, showing the crowds of people attempting to jump over the gates and sprint into NRG Park.
“EVERYONE HAVE FUN. BE SAFE RAGE HARD,” the artist captioned the post.
Meanwhile, the Houston Police Department shared that they would be “bringing additional officers to staff the Astroworld Festival,” adding that “the promoters did not plan sufficiently for the large crowds.”
Over 50,000 people were slated to attend this year’s one-day festival, which included a star-studded lineup of performances by Scott, Pharell, Migos, Gucci Mane and Rosalia among others....
