Travis Scott to provide refunds for all Astroworld attendees after fatal crowd surge

Travis Scott will issue full refunds for attendees who bought tickets to his Astroworld Festival in Houston, TX, where eight people died in a crowd surge on Friday, sources confirm to ABC News.

The rapper will also not perform at this weekend’s Day N Vegas Festival, where he was previously scheduled as a headliner.

The eight Astroworld victims have now all been identified and range in age from 14 to 27. Hundreds of other concertgoers were injured when the crowd OF 50,000 began to rush the stage at NRG Park in Houston during Scott’s set.  A second Astroworld show scheduled for Saturday was cancelled.

In statements on social media following the incident, Scott said he was “absolutely devastated” by what happened and is “working closely with everybody to get to the bottom of this.”

Two concertgoers have already filed lawsuits in the festival’s aftermath as of early Monday.
