A number of Travis Scott fans have been injured in a stampede at the rapper's Astroworld festival event.

The stampede happened when the gates were opened at NRG Park and fans knocked down the barricades instead of filing into the venue in an orderly fashion. The official Astroworld account later shared an image of a packed crowd inside captioned "REAL RAGERS". More than 50,000 people were expected to attend the fest.

Travis Scott's fans are in "sicko mode".

In 2015, the rapper's Lollapalooza set was shut down and he was arrested after reportedly encouraging followers to leap a safety barrier and rush the stage.

It was while performing at Rolling Loud New York last month that Scott busted the knee after landing pretty hard from a fall. The performance came a day after West released the music video for the Jesus Is King track.
