Travis Scott has said that all 2021 Astroworld Festival tickets will be refunded following this weekend’s massive and fatal crowd surge incident, according to Variety.
Travis Scott Promises Astroworld 2021 Refunds and to cover funeral costs of Astroworld Fest victims
Eight died and more than 300 were injured during Scott’s set last week.
The Houston rapper has issued a release announcing that he will pay funeral expenses for the eight victims of a deadly crowd surge at NRG Park in his hometown Astroworld Festival on Nov. 5.
As well as providing additional aid to those affected. He has partnered with BetterHelp to supply free one-on-one online therapy for anyone who requires it in the wake of the incident.
As previously reported, eight people died—ages ranging between 14 and 27 years old—and dozens were hospitalized following day one of Travis' Astroworld Festival. The second day of the festival was canceled.
The deaths and injuries were caused by a crowd surge, which compressed people towards the stage, causing many to be crushed. There were also around 50,000 people in attendance.
Additionally, La Flame has teamed up with BetterHelp to offer free one-on-one online therapy, and is working in tandem with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), MHA National (Mental Health America) and MHA of Greater Houston (Mental Health America) to help guide those seeking proper mental health services following the devastating occurrence.
The Cactus Jack Records founder notes that he remains diligent in his efforts to assist Houston, city law officials and first responders to "respectfully" and "appropriately" assist the attendees and families of those involved in the tragic event that took place on Friday.
