Arlene was one of the early birds who ventured from NRG Park’s blue lot, across the pedestrian bridge over Kirby and made it through the gates.
Crowds push into festival
Things did get tense as crowds grew at the festival. A Twitter user captured this video of people stepping on others as they made their way inside.
Scharell Aho and Dillon Rowell hit more of a crowd when they came in.
“It took us a while to get in here,” they said. “It’s been a little hectic.”
But once they were in, they say they were going to make it “legendary.”
Legendary is a great word to describe the atmosphere at Astroworld. There’s no sitting around waiting for the next act.
This year’s Astroworld has more than 30 rides and carnival games.
“We got some prizes, man. Great carnival games,” said Matthew Martinez, who is at the Astroworld Festival for the third year. “I’m going to go ahead and show you. Eyeball pillow. Cacti. Blanket. Then tote bag to put your goodies in.”
