What Can We Learn From Astroworld?

What Can We Learn From Astroworld?

This week we are doing something a little bit different. We are discussing a current event. Please welcome back Sully Sullivan from Episode 28. Sully was nice enough to sit down and explain to me what happened at Travis Scott’s Astroworld fest. I had been seeing a lot of information floating around online and I wanted some solid answers from someone who was well informed on what goes into putting on a festival. Our goal is to not point any fingers, and place any blame on any one party. But rather just learn how we can all do better in the future. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. Sending love to the lives that were lost at the event. I feel terrible this happened to them.

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• What happened at Astroworld
• How to keep yourself safe at a festival or show
• About the techniques security uses at shows to keep the crowd under control
• What the possible future of shows will look like
