In a statement on Twitter Saturday morning, festival organizers said “our hearts are with the Astroworld Festival family tonight — especially those we lost and their loved ones,” and that they “are focused on supporting local officials however we can.”— ASTROWORLD FEST (@astroworldfest) November 6, 2021

The crowd got increasingly packed over a long period, an official said, who added eventually “you just feel like there’s a weighted blanket on you. Video from the event showed the performer on stage — rapper and event organizer Travis Scott — pause and look on in confusion as an ambulance with flashing lights moved into the densely packed crowd. About 50,000 people were at the sold-out outdoor Astroworld Festival at NRG Park — the stadium complex where the Astrodome and the NRG Stadium stand — when the incident happened just after 9 p.m. CT, officials said.

“The amount of people I saw get hurt, passed out, bleeding, crying is crazy,” Munguia said. People there described being increasingly squeezed as Scott’s performance approached, and then feeling crushed and seeing others pass out and scream in terror when the performance began. “The crowd was squishing me so much that I felt like I couldn’t breathe,” Emily Munguia, 22, told CNN.

Come the chorus, rising tempos help the message to ring further true, as bold strokes of piano are introduced to add a further depth, synth lines further then rise to cut through the deeper elements bubbling through.

Speaking on the collaboration, ALOK said: “It was great to be able to have John jump on the track, the production was something I’d been wanting to release for a while and to have him elevate the song with his amazing voice, recognisable to so many of us in the scene, meant we were then able to create something truly unique with each of our styles incorporated. “If the world was ending/ you know I’d carry you home/ I’d go wherever you go” shines the topline out of the speakers, effervescent and warm in its delivery making for a concoction of a sparkling omission from both artists. We´re so happy to be a part of this Brazilian-meets-Swedish all-star team!” John is no stranger to the scene, having hypnotized audiences with his spellbinding sound, ever since his breakthrough a decade ago with co-writing and vocal accolades alongside Swedish House Mafia (‘Save The World’/ ‘Don’t You Worry Child’), Avicii (‘Fade Into Darkness’), Martin Garrix (‘Now That I’ve Found You’ / ‘Higher Ground’) and more! Commencing with a tropical-leaning flavor, elevated by panpipes and a house-edged melody, John’s vocal soars “I’ll be the last man standing/ to keep you safe from the storm”, drawing in the listener with a message of beauty that elevates Alok’s sunshine-flecked production to new heights. ‘Wherever You Go’ brings a radio-ready, dance-sprinkled sound to the fore that will have fans beaming with delight.
