What Happened at Astroworld Festival 2021? How People Died?


Many are asking that what happened at Astroworld festival 2021 and how at least eight people reportedly passed away and many others were injured on Friday night (November 5, 2021). May they all rest in peace.

Officials described the tragedy as a surge of the crowd at the Astroworld music festival in Houston while rapper Travis Scott was performing on stage at the festival on Friday night.

The view from SkyEye overhead showed the heavy police and fire department activity in the area of the event as organizers ended it early. As seen on the event’s live stream, Scott paused his performance to look on in confusion when an ambulance with lights flashing entered the venue.

Officials declared a “mass casualty incident” just after 9 p.m. Friday during the festival where an estimated 50,000 people were in attendance, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters at a news conference.

“The crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, and that caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries,” the fire chief said. “People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic.”

The show was called off quickly after that. The fire chief said “scores of individuals” were injured. Houston police established a command center at the Wyndham Hotel on Kirby Drive near the festival site for information on missing persons.

While the most deadly moments happened after 9:30 p.m., Peña said over 300 patients total had been treated at a field hospital since the event kicked off, including people who were hurt throughout the worst moments. While names and ages of the casualties weren’t known, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said one of the victims was 10-years-old.

Officials transported 17 people to hospitals, including 11 who were in cardiac arrest, Peña said. Many people were also treated at the scene at NRG Park, where a field hospital had been set up. About 300 people were examined at that site throughout the day, he said.

Astroworld is a two-day music festival that was scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday in Houston. The event was sold out, according to the Astroworld website. Saturday’s performances have been canceled.

The two-day festival was staging its third year of music. Musicians and artists who were scheduled to appear included Young Thug and YSL, Bad Bunny, Chief Keef, Tame Impala, Earth Wind & Fire, and others, according to the festival’s website.

Event promoters had arranged for medical units to be on scene at the festival, however, once the crowd surge began, those units were “quickly overwhelmed,” Peña said.

Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Larry Satterwhite was near the front of the crowd and said it seemed the surge “happened all at once.”
