LOS ANGELES, CA (April 25, 2024)A Houston court ruled on Wednesday that rapper Travis Scott must face a jury trial regarding his role in the Astroworld festival disaster. The 2021 event resulted in 10 fatalities and numerous injuries, sparking a wave of litigation with claims seeking billions in damages.


Judge Kristen Hawkins rejected Scott’s dismissal plea, who argued that ensuring fan safety was not his responsibility but that of the event organizers. The trial, scheduled for May, will delve into these allegations of negligence by Scott and co-defendants, including event organizer Live Nation.


The legal proceedings on the Astroworld and Travis Scott wrongful death cases have seen extensive pre-trial activity, including an eight-hour deposition of Scott. While Scott must attend the trial, co-performer Drake has been excused, having not been involved in the festival’s organization.


The first case set for trial involves the family of Madison Dubiski, a 23-year-old who died at the festival. This case is part of a broader legal challenge to address the accountability of performers and organizers in ensuring the safety of their events.
