Travis Scott attended afterparty amid Astroworld Festival disaster, was unaware of fatalities

Amid the Astroworld Festival disaster, Travis Scott went to Dave & Buster’s for a concert afterparty.

The 30-year-old rapper went from NRG Arena in Houston, where a stampede during his show led to eight deaths and hundreds of injures, to a party hosted by Drake, who was a surprise performer at Scott’s show, as the tragedy continued to play out, sources tell Yahoo Entertainment.

Scott didn’t know the severity of the situation when he arrived at the party, the sources say. He immediately left the party after he was informed about the tragedy at his concert.

As the investigation continues, a timeline has come together for Friday’s tragedy. Scott, who founded the festival in his hometown in 2018, was performing with Drake, whose appearance was a surprise, at about 9 p.m. when the crowd started to surge toward the stage. Some of the approximately 50,000 concertgoers became crushed and trampled amid the scene, and by 9:38 p.m. authorities deemed it a mass-casualty event. Two minutes after that, the first person was treated by medics. Amid the flashing lights of an ambulance and medical crews helping ailing concertgoers, Scott continued performing until approximately 10:15 p.m.
