According to reports, Travis Scott, Live Nation, and other acts associated with AstroWorld this past weekend are now facing a number of lawsuits filed by those who were in attendance of the festival’s Texas show.
At least 35 lawsuits have reportedly been filed through the District Clerk of Harris County following the event in Houston which took eight lives and left over 200 individuals with sustained injuries.

Drake also made an appearance at the festival, along with Cactus Jack, a promoter by the name of ScoreMore and the Harris County Sports and Convention Corporation have also been names in several lawsuits.
It is currently unclear of how proceedings for lawsuits will play out, but there are also reports noting that any insurance policies held by parties named in illegal filings should not be able to cover the millions that suffered both physically and mentally at the event from the tragedy that transpired.
Harris County District Judge Ravi K. Sandil issued an order allowing attorneys to inspect and photograph the NRG Park grounds, where the festivities took place. Travis will also be investigated along with his conduct on stage.
