Astroworld Security Guard Says He Was Hired "On The Spot" With No Concert Experience

Jackson Bush, a security guard who was hired to work at Travis Scott’s 2021 Astroworld Festival, says he was given the job “on the spot” with minimal prior experience and having never been to a concert before. Eight people ended up dying and hundreds more were injured at the event following a crowd surge during Scott’s performance.

“I don’t believe I was prepared,” Bush said. “I believe if we were all prepared the right way, that stuff would not have happened the way it did. Honestly, even with the amount of people that passed and went unconscious … the amount of injuries could have been avoided.”
