    Toro y Moi Donating Astroworld 2021 Profits to Victims’ Families

    Chaz Bear, aka Toro y Moi, is donating all profits from his performance at Travis Scott’s 2021 Astroworld Festival to the families of the victims from the November 5 event. “I’d like to send my condolences to the families of those who were killed at AstroWorld last week,” Bear wrote today (November 10). “To show support, my business/management teams, my band and crew, and I are all donating our entire fees and any profit to the families of the victims from the event,” he added. “Profiting from this event feels completely off and I’d like to encourage other performers to consider helping in someway as well.” Find his full announcement below.

    The first night of Astroworld 2021 ended in tragedy last week, as the crowd compressed toward the front of the stage, killing eight people and injuring hundreds at NRG Park in Houston. The ages of the deceased range from 14 to 27. The medical examiner is currently investigating the causes of death.

    Roddy Ricch was one of the first Astroworld artists to announce that he would donate profits to victims’ families. “Please have the families of those who we lost yesterday reach out,” he wrote in a November 6 Instagram Story (viewed by Pitchfork). “I’ll be donating my net compensation to the families of this incident #Pray4Houston.”

    Scott has released two statements following the tragedy, promised refunds to attendees, and said he will cover the funeral costs for the families of the eight people who died. Scott is currently facing multiple lawsuits over the incident.

    Drake, who made a surprise appearance with Scott at Astroworld, released his own statement regarding the November 5 tragedy. Drake was also named in a lawsuit over the incident.
