Travis Scott, Live Nations, ScoreMore and other Astroworld Festival organizers are getting sued for 1 Million Dollars over the deadly “mass-casualty incident” at the opening night of the annual event on Nov. 5th.
The lawsuit was failed by Manuel Souza, who is the injured attendee of the event.
Manuel described the concert as: “predictable and preventable tragedy.” that was motivated by the “profit at the expense of concertgoers.” He insists that the festival was the “encouragement of violence”
Manuel’s attorney- Steve Kherkher wrote: “Defendants failed to properly plan and conduct the concert in a safe manner.” Adding: “Instead, they consciously ignored the extreme risks of harm to concertgoers, and, in some cases actively encouraged and fomented dangerous behaviors.”
There are many videos of fans asking event organizers to stop the show but they were ignored each time. Travis himself paused few times, asking security to check on his fans who were fainted in the crowd.

#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

Manuel Souza’s lawsuit claims that Astroworld festival organizers “made the conscious decision to let the show go on.”
The disastrous crowd surge killed total of 8 people and injured over 300 making the event one of the most fatal crowd disasters in the history of music festivals.
