Travis Scott and Astroworld Organisers sued for $750m

More than 125 people who were caught up in the deadly Astroworld music festival crush have sued rapper Travis Scott and other organizers for $750m. The family of Axel Acosta, 21, one of the 10 victims, are among those bringing the legal case in the US.
It claims Scott and guest star Drake kept performing despite accounts of “lifeless bodies being passed through the crowd in full view of the stage”. Scott has said he was not aware of the tragedy until coming off stage.

Last week, the rapper said he was “distraught” by the events in Houston, Texas, on 5 November, and promised to “provide aid” to every affected family.
Fellow rapper Drake has said his “heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone else who is suffering”.
Papers filed in the US also name festival promoters Live Nation; technology giant Apple, which streamed the concert; Scott’s record labels Epic and Cactus Jack; the operators of Houston’s NRG Park venue; and firms who provided security and medical services.
