A university student is suing Evenko, the festival promoter and organizer behind Montreal's Osheaga Festival, thanks to a late performance by 2018 headliner Travis Scott. According to a report in The Montreal Gazette, Megan Le Stum's filing asks that every person who bought a ticket to see Travis Scott on August 3 should receive a refund – Scott was scheduled to perform from 9:45-10:55 p.m., but did not take the stage for his 40 minute set until 11 p.m.
Scott also faces a lawsuit from Kyle Green, a fan who was severely injured at one of Scott's shows last year. Green, who was viewing the April 30 show from a balcony at Manhattan's Terminal 5, claims he was pushed off the elevated platform by the crowd after Scott incited them to jump. His injuries reportedly include a fractured vertebrae broken left wrist, and fractured right ankle.
According to a report from The Blast, Scott has countersued New York promoter Bowery Presents and security company Strike Force Protective Services, as Pitchfork points out. His filing claims the "recklessness and carelessness" of the venue and security led to the fan's injuries, and that they should be responsible for any monetary compensation Green receives through a court ruling.
The FADER has reached out to representatives for Travis Scott and Osheaga Festival for comment.
