Ben Crump told reporters in Houston, “If Travis Scott is accountable, he surely should be held accountable.” In the wake of last week’s horrific Astroworld music festival in Houston, nearly 200 people have filed 93 lawsuits through civil rights attorney Ben Crump’s legal team, according to his legal team.

On Nov. 5, during rapper Travis Scott’s concert at NRG Stadium, at least nine people were killed when fans rushed the stage. So, if we want to make a change to ensure that people are secure, we need to talk to the CEO of the parent organization, the industry leader.

That’s the only way you’re going to get change .” On Friday, a representative for Scott refused to comment on the cases. However, last week, the entertainer stated that he would thoroughly assist the Houston Police Department in the investigation. The company is also cooperating with investigators, according to a Live Nation representative.

While most of the plaintiffs are from Texas, the lawsuit proves Scott’s festival’s incredible appeal, which moved fans from all over the country. Plaintiffs came from Los Angeles, South Florida, New York, and other cities large and small. Several of Crump and Hilliard’s clients spoke to reporters in Houston, describing the chaos at the annual music festival.

Because of the dangerously crowded conditions, Dishon Issac referred to the scene as a “war zone.” Due to a lack of staffing and planning, Hilliard believes the festival should never have taken place.

“The medical staff was egregiously, egregiously understaffed,” said the attorney. “They lacked sufficient personnel. There weren’t enough stretchers. They didn’t have enough defibrillators to resuscitate everyone whose hearts stopped beating.”

The event is being investigated by the Houston Fire Department, Houston Police Department, FBI, and other organisations. “We are heartbroken for all who were lost and touched at Astroworld,” Live Nation said in a statement.
