Travis Scott to refund Astroworld Festival attendees, will not perform in Las Vegas, NBC News reports

Travis Scott performs at Kailand's Swaggy 16th birthday party at Belasco Theatre on September 9, 2017, in Los Angeles.

HOUSTON – Houston rapper Travis Scott announced he will provide full refunds for all attendees who bought tickets to Astroworld Festival after a “crowd surge” left eight dead on Friday night, sources told NBC News on Monday.

KPRC 2 Legal Analyst Brian Wice says accepting a refund could mean you forfeit any chance to sue later or join a class action lawsuit and collect damages. Wice says the refund could be considered a settlement.

Meanwhile, Wice tells NBC News that he is “too distraught to play” after the events at NRG Park.

Sources also told NBC News that he will not perform at this weekend’s “Day N’ Vegas” Festival in Las Vegas. He was scheduled to headline the show this Saturday along with other artists such as Doja Cat, Saweetie, and Lil Baby.
