Travis Scott has been ‘dropped’ from Coachella The 2022 lineup after the Astroworld festival tragedy, it has been announced.

Last month, 10 fans died and hundreds more were injured in an explosion of crowds that occurred when the rapper of Sicko Mode took the stage, in Houston.

After the incident, Coachella organizers have been called to action and excluded him from the following year’s festival, where he was said to be very popular.

After a Change.org One’s father’s petition to be deported has nearly 60,000 signatures, the boss is said to have acted.

Based on Diversity, Scott has now been dropped from the roster for next year’s game, which takes place over the weekends April 15-17 and April 22-24, in California.

The publication reports that sources say organizers have informed the star’s representatives that his film has been cut and will have to pay a ‘murder fee’ for the cancellation.

Scott was first announced as the headliner for Coachella for the 2020 festival, alongside Rage Against the Machine and Frank Ocean – but it has been postponed several times due to the global pandemic.

While Ocean postponed his title show to 2023, Scott and RATM are still expected to take the stage next April – but an official announcement has yet to be made.

Musician Goosebumps – whose real name is Jacques Webster – has kept his mouth shut following the tragedy at his Astroworld festival in early November in which 10 fans lost their lives, of which the youngest victim was just 9 years old.

He recently talked about the challenge in a live interview with Charlamagne Tha God on his YouTube channel and explained that he couldn’t hear the crowd accident while performing.

“It’s crazy because I’m an artist too – anytime you can hear something like that, you want to stop the show,” he said. ‘You want to make sure the fans get the attention they need. Anytime I could see anything like that, I did.

‘I stopped it a couple of times to make sure everyone was okay. And I’m really just giving the energy of the fans as a whole – calling and responding. I just didn’t hear that.

‘You can only help what you can see and whatever you are told. Whenever someone tells you to stop, you stop. ‘

Addressing the injured and the families of the victims, Scott added: ‘I’m always here, I’m in here with you and I love you. I will always be there to help you heal this wound.

‘I understand they are grieving right now and are looking for sympathy. It’s not just a thing right now, it’s a thing forever.

‘The people who come to the show, they are my family. I will always have that connection with everyone.

“It’s really hard for me to even… They have lost their loved ones. Really hard. I just want to always be with them, and I will fix for future people, and fix the solution. ‘
