There’s more fallout for Travis Scott in the wake of the deadly crowd surge at his Astroworld Festival in Houston in November that resulted in 10 people being killed and hundreds more injured.
The rapper was dropped from the lineup for the upcoming 2022 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival, where he was slated to be among the headliners, according to Variety.
Criticized by some Astroworld attendees for not stopping his headlining concert sooner, news of his removal from the Coachella Festival comes on the heels of a Change.org petition that’s lobbying for Scott’s removal from all Goldenvoice performances.
At last check on Friday night, the petition has already gathered nearly 60,000 signatures.
The news that Scott will no longer be a part of the Coachella 2022 line up was first reported by KESQ in Palm Springs, who attributed the decision, in part, to the city of Indio and the Community Services Manager Jim Curtis.
The online petition called on Coachella organizers Goldenvoice and Paul Tollett to remove the rapper from music festivals after his concert in Houston.
So far, representatives for Scott, the Coachella festival and the city of Indio, California, where the event is held, have not confirmed the KESQ report.
