Travis Scott Cancels Festival Appearance After Astroworld Tragedy


Following the devastating tragedy at Astroworld, which left eight dead and dozens hospitalized, Travis Scott will no longer take the stage at the upcoming Day N Vegas festival.
 
A source confirms to E! News that Scott, who was scheduled to make a headlining appearance on Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds, has cancelled and plans to refund all Astroworld attendees.
 
The cancellation comes just days after eight concertgoers, ranging from ages 14 to 27, were confirmed dead by authorities following a “mass casualty incident” on what was supposed to be the first night of Scott’s Astroworld festival. Following the incident on Nov. 5, the event—originally a two-day festival—was immediately cancelled.
 
In a press conference following the event, authorities said that just after 9 p.m. local time on Nov. 5, the crowd “began to compress towards the front of the stage” causing panic and injuries. “People began to fall out, become unconscious,” authorities said, “and it created additional panic.” The concert event, held at Houston’s NRG Park, was estimated to have almost 50,000 attendees present.
