Travis Scott Issuing Refunds, Paying for Funerals, Live Nation to Pay Medical Bills
Rapper Travis Scott is issuing refunds to attendees of the Astroworld festival in Houston. He also announced that he won’t perform his headlining set at this weekend’s Day N Vegas Festival.
His team says he’s “too distraught” to play after eight people died and dozens more were injured during a crowd surge at his Astroworld festival Friday.
Scott said he would cover all funeral costs for the victims and that he had partnered with BetterHelp to supply free one-on-one online therapy for those affected by the tragedy.
Live Nation Developing Fund to Pay Astroworld Attendees’ Medical Fees
Astroworld’s promoters are developing a fund to cover the medical bills of the festival’s attendees.
During Travis Scott's set there was a crowd surge that left eight people killed and hundreds injured.
Live Nation and ScoreMore have announced plans to develop a health fund earmarked to cover the festival’s attendees’ medical feesand provide mental health counseling resources.
Lawsuits have already begun to be filed against Scott and Live Nation, with one accusing the parties and others of “negligence and gross negligence”. Another claims the incident was a result of “a motivation for profit at the expense of concertgoers’ health and safety”.
