The “Astroworld” concert, where 8 people died and over 300 other concert-goers were injured during rapper Travis Scott’s performance, was like a satanic ritual, attendees of the concert claim.
Scott watched his fans fall to the ground as paramedics tried to resuscitate them during his performance on Friday. But the show did not stop.
Instead, it came to a crescendo with displays of dark imagery as Scott played for another 30 minutes.
“It was demonic,” an Astroworld attendee warned in a video he published after leaving the concert.
“It just felt like we [were] like, literally, like in f***ing hell, bro. It felt like we [were] in a concert in hell. You couldn’t breathe. You couldn’t see. Just imagine all the people they are going to find tonight who [were] in that crowd who nobody could see, who nobody could hear who passed out. And everybody was just trampling on top of them in the whole f***ing concert,” he said.
“It was so many bodies who [were] laid out. People were getting pulled out who was fainted. The managers were trying to give them CPR and they were flipping them over and they were literally turning black and blue. [I’ve never seen death] in my f***ing life bro,” he continued. “That was demonic shit. What was so crazy – people were screaming, ‘Help!’ trying to tell Travis Scott. The whole crowd was going, ‘Help! Help!’ and he just kept going, bro. It was scary – it was so demonic.”
Scott is seen in video watching paramedics carry out a member who died in his audience as he continued to sing, but he claimed on Sunday that he would have stopped the show if was aware people were in danger.
“My fans really mean the world to me and I always just really want to leave them with a positive experience,” Scott said in a statement on Twitter, as he shuts his eyes and profusely rubs his forehead. “Anytime I can make out anything that’s going on, I would stop the show and you know, help them get the help they need. I could just never just imagine the severity of the situation.”
The rapper, whose real name is Jacques Bermon Webster, is now facing lawsuits filed by concertgoers who were injured in the crowd.
Scott kicked off the show standing in front of a fiery, hellish mountain and a giant eyeball that gazed at the public.
Some in the crowd began climbing to the stage pleading for the performance to stop as they watched those around them faint, but it never did.

Scott’s performance concluded with giant hands wrapping around the portal.
Attendees of the concert, including a security guard, were injected with an unknown substance, according to Houston’s Police Department Chief Troy Finner.
“Chief Finner said a security guard working the event felt a prick in his neck by an unknown assailant while he was trying to restrain a citizen — and he quickly fell unconscious. Finner says the guard was revived by use of NARCAN … and that medical personnel did, indeed, see something on his neck that indicated he’d been stabbed with a syringe,” TMZ reports.
Days before performing at Astroworld, Scott released the song “Escape Plan.” The album cover accompanying the new song depicts Scott as Weekly World News’ “bat boy” alongside the headline “The True Dystopia Is Here!”
