Travis Scott's Fans Injured Trying to Get into the Rapper's Astroworld Festival

If there was a competition to assess the most savage fandom, Travis Scott's might win! Reports of how the rapper's fans got injured while trying to get to his music festival is fast making rounds.

Three fans of Travis Scott were injured on Saturday at his Astroworld festival, which was held at NRG Park, ABC 13 reports.

The gates to the arena didn't open until noon at the highly anticipated festival, but chaos had already begun outside. Tensed attendees set into a stampede when it was about time for the event to start. 

According to the Houston Fire Department, three people were transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital because they suffered minor leg injuries after being trampled as they attempted to enter the festival.

In a video that is fast getting popular, the moment the gates crashed and hundreds of fans rushed over can be seen. According to an announcement related by officials on Twitter, the stampede was a result of the event being poorly planned. 

In the tweet that was later removed, authorities shared that the event is understaffed and "promoters did not plan sufficiently for the large crowds."

A new tweet, however, shares that the police are working "closely" with the staff of the festival to ensure that the festival goes on hitch-free and without any more casualties. The tweet reads:

"We are successfully working together to support Houston's biggest music festival @astroworldfest at @nrgpark and collaborating closely with the festival to ensure the public safety of everyone attending the event. We look forward to a memorable night. #hounews."

The famous festival is reportedly set to entertain about 50,000 people and going by reports that many fans already set camps about the arena in preparation for the start of the program, it appears the show is one highly anticipated. 

Travis is seemingly aware of the stampede, and he took to Instagram to post the video of the stampede and implore his fans to "stay safe."

He wrote:

"DA YOUTH DEM CONTROL THE FREQUENCY. EVERYONE HAVE FUN. RAGERS SET TONE WHEN I COME OUT TONIGHT. BE SAFE RAGE HARD. AHHHHHHHHHHH."

From reports, however, it doesn't look like the fans plan to heed the rapper's advice with police revealing that at least one person was arrested at the event for public intoxication. 

The show, which reportedly sold-out, continued as planned on Saturday.
