Astroworld Festival Timeline: How the tragedy unfolded

This article details the events that unfolded on Friday, November 5, 2021, at Travis Scotts concert at the Astroworld Festival.

This article is very informative for those who have not been following this story closely. The Travis Scott, Astroworld concert fiasco has been largely covered and highly debated on social media amongst fans. This article talks little about the social media aspect of this situation and almost entirely about the actual events that unfolded on the date and in the weeks following all the way up to today November 18th, 2021.

While this article seems to be entirely informative in its purpose, it also becomes very impactful when it discusses the actual victims that lost their lives and got injured during the concert. At one point it highlights the death of a nine-year old boy who succumbed to his injuries nine days after the incident. 

While this article does not assign fault to anyone it does make it clear that victims are blaming Travis Scott, the venue, and the producers of the concert. At least thirty lawsuits have been filed regarding this incident.

I would suggest this article to anyone who does not know the details of this case but wants to. It is very good at maintaining its objectivity in a situation that is so widely controversial across the United States.
