Travis Scott mobbed by fans in shocking video just one day before Astroworld Festival tragic stampede that left 8 dead

TRAVIS Scott was met by a wild mob of fans just one day before the tragic death of eight at his Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas.

The rapper's concert quickly turned into chaos when a stampede caused injury and death.

Travis, 29, was mobbed by fans just hours before the tragic incident that took the lives of eight festival attendees.

The father of one was seen running through a shouting crowd of people who were pushing and shoving in order to get a photo.

The mob of individuals videotaped the singer as he made his way from a building to a parking lot.

Travis was surrounded by security as he pushed through the raging group of fans and ducked into a car before leaving the scene.


The video was taken just one day before the tragic events that occurred at the Sicko Mode singer's Astroworld Festival in Houston.

A crowding incident left at least eight people dead and many others injured, officials said.

A mass of 50,000 people showed up for the two-day event, which sold out within an hour of tickets going live in May.

Officials in Texas said the crowd began to "compress towards the front of the stage" at around 9:15 pm, sparking panic.

Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña said: “We had at least eight confirmed fatalities today. We had scores of individuals injured at this event.”

He added that a "mass casualty incident" was triggered at 9:38 pm and investigations are ongoing.

"At approximately 9:15 pm the crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage and that caused some panic and it started causing some injuries," Peña said.

"People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic," he continued.


Event organizers announced on Saturday, November 6 that the festival was canceled.

"Our hearts are with the Astroworld Festival family tonight – especially those we lost and their loved ones," the statement read.

"We are focused on supporting local officials however we can.

"With that in mind the festival will no longer be held on Saturday," the statement continued.

Organizers said authorities were "looking into the series of cardiac arrests that took place."


Travis issued a statement on his Twitter page on Saturday to tell fans his prayers went out to the families involved.

"I am absolutely devastated by what took place last night. My prayers go out to the families and all those impacted by what happened at Astroworld Festival," he wrote.

Travis added: "Houston PD has my total support as they continue to look into this tragic loss of life.

"I am committed to working together with the Houston community to heal and support the families in need. Thank you to Houston PD, Fire Department and the NRG Park for their immediate response and support."


Kylie, Kendall, and Stormi traveled south to support Travis for the third installment of the Texas show.

The beauty mogul is currently pregnant with her second child with the Franchise rapper.

An insider revealed to The Sun on Saturday that the famous sisters were seen "walking past bodies as they were escorted out of the event" as the situation became dire.

"Kendall and Kylie each had 6 massive bodyguards with them," the source recalled.

"After everything went down, Kendall and Kylie were escorted out & walked past bodies and people getting CPR.

The informant continued: "They kept their heads down & made sure no one saw their faces.

"They were doing everything so that no one would notice them and were covered up so no one could see their reaction.

"One guy got carted out in front of them. They were wearing masks and had their hoodies up," the insider said.

Kylie has yet to make a public statement regarding the incident.
