Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival is an annual music event.
Friday night was the first day of the huge weekend festival in Huston, Texas but it turned into a mess due to the fact that security wasn’t able to manage the massive crowd.
Multiple medics and other personnel were at the scene as people were passing out and were in immediate need of professional care.
Huston Fire Department took to twitter to let people know they were present at the festival and warn them about the danger.
@HoustonFire is currently on scene near NRG after receiving reports of multiple civilian injuries. PIO is en route. Stay tuned for immediate updates @FireChiefofHFD

Before the show began, fans overtook the security and barged into the event.

Here’s a video of Travis trying to help one of the fans that passed out at the event:
#ASTROWORLDFest He tried but he couldn’t save them all. I’m sure if he would’ve stopped the show that place would’ve gotten even more dangerous. His fans BROKE the fence to get in!! I couldn’t imagine if he would’ve stopped right there. There’s not much that could’ve been pic.twitter.com/9fearWR7Ka
