Earlier this week, event organizers of 'Day N Vegas' announced a change to one of their main headliners, which saw Travis Scott be pulled out of the event from performing.

This happens just as investigators dig deeper into a stampede that left eight people dead and at least 300 more injured, according to local media.

Scott not being involved also comes as he faces huge lawsuits, including one, from a family of a 9-year-old Ezra Blount who attended the event with his father.

According to the lawsuit filed on Tuesday, the nine-year-old boy was allegedly kicked, stepped on and trampled and nearly crushed to death.

Quoting his lawsuit details, Variety reported that the boy is currently in an induced coma on life support and has incurred severe liver, kidney and brain damage.

This lawsuit is a part of almost 18 more that have reportedly been filed against artists (Travis, Drake, etc.) and the Astroworld music festival organizers.

A large majority of why Scott is being sued is because he is believed to have continued performing for around 30 minutes after police declared the festival a "mass casualty event".

Kylie Jenner's statement on her Instagram also alludes to the fact that the performance continued after people had collapsed and that they would have stopped the event had they known of fatalities beforehand.

As such, he is remaining well-put without any appearances during this time. However, it is unclear if he asked for time off willingly.

The promoter for 'Day N Vegas' Goldenvoice said:

The security and safety of all attending Day N Vegas has been and is always a top priority in our festival planning. We continue to work hand in hand with law enforcement, medical personnel and public safety agencies on our protocol for the weekend."

Goldenvoice, as a promoter, also happens to be behind the production of the most popular and prominent event, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Travis Scott is still scheduled to headline this event in April 2022, and there have been no updates of whether the artist will continue to headline it or be replaced.

Seeing as the artist is facing up to $25 million in lawsuits, these cases are reportedly going to drag for months, and the event is happening in five months.

Some fans have organized a petition to remove him from the Coachella lineup, and this gathered over 25,000 signatures at the end of sending this article for publication on Tuesday, November 10, 2021.

Do you think Travis Scott will also be dropped out of Coachella 2022? If he does not drop out, how do you think this will look on him? Do you also believe that these lawsuits will be settled fast without any delays? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
