According to Consequence, a lawsuit has been filed on behalf of 125 Astroworld festival-goers, including some family members of the ten people killed in the crowd. They are seeking $750 million in damages from Travis Scott, Drake, promoter Live Nation, and Apple Music, which live-streamed the festival.
Houston attorney Tony Buzbee announced the news on Instagram, saying that “every individual who attended that concert and who suffered injury will be fairly compensated.” He will also be representing the family of Axel Acosta, who died, as well for those who “suffered broken bones, or twisted knees, or orthopedic injuries. Many have psychological injury.”
Earlier this month, two attendees filed lawsuits against Scott, Drake and Live Nation. One was Michael Souza, whose lawyer says “Defendants failed to properly plan and conduct the concert in a safe manner. Kristian Paredes, also claimed that the artists “incited the crowd” that led to his injuries.
