Inside Travis Scott's creepy set design with inverted cross as bizarre satanic 'blood sacrifice' conspiracies run wild

CREEPY details of Travis Scott' Astroworld set are fueling bizarre online conspiracy theories that the eight attendees who tragically died were satanic "blood sacrifices."

Astroworld, Scott's Houston-based music festival, turned deadly last weekend when multiple attendees ages 14 to 27 were trampled to death as the tightly packed crowd of more than 50,000 rushed towards the stage.

But online conspiracy theorists have their own ideas about the tragic deaths, which they believe were "blood sacrifices" carried out by Scott as part of a mass satanic ritual.

The theories have picked up new traction in already established conspiratorial communities online like Qanon.

As proponents scan images of the concert for apparent clues of Scott's allegiance to Satan, many have pointed the finger at Astroworld's strange decor.

One element seized upon by conspiracy theorists is the entrance to the festival, a giant model of Scott's head with the entryway through the open mouth.

Some compared the gaping mouth to the Hieronymus Bosch's famous painting Christ in Limbo, which depicts the gates of Hell.

One Twitter user wrote: "The painting is 'Christ in Limbo' depicting satanic worshipers and the limbo between life and hell.

"Pictured is the painting compared to the entrance to Astroworld.

"The symbolism was there, from the entrance, to the portal on stage, to his shirt he had on."

Others latched onto Scott's shirt, which shows blue figures passing through a screen and turning red.

They believe the shirt worn by the rapper represents people passing through a portal and transforming into demons.

Some noticed that the stage is shaped like an inverted cross, which they claim leads into a "portal to hell."

One TikToker posted a video questioning, "Anyone else notice that the stage is an inverted cross leading to a portal to Hell."

The fiery themes of Scott's performance, including flames shooting up from the stage at certain points, also fueled the far-fetched theories.

Some Twitter users even counted eight flames, pointing out that the number was the same as the death toll.

One wrote: "The whole Astro World event was nothing but a literal satanic sacrifice.

"I'm sure it's just pure coincidence that as those 8 people died there were 8 flames shooting upwards. There's so much more that shows this is a ritual sacrifice."

Even the circular shape of the arch around the Astroworld stage didn't escape online attention.

Some internet sleuths swore they could see "runes" written around the circle, which they labeled a "summoning circle."

One tweet referenced the shape: "This shows up around 33:20 in the concert at astro world looks like symbols to a summoning circle and only shows for .5 of a second probably less"

Promotional posters for the festival also didn't escape the attention of conspiracy theorists, who pointed to the symbolism and slogan of "See you on the other side" as evidence of a demonic plot.

One poster widely circulated online shows two hands with eyes on the palms surrounding what appears to be a path leading into a portal.

One Instagram post read: "Y'all eyes wide shut when it's right in your face and you still can't see the s**t. The flyer was full of freemason occult symbolism.

"This was a Satanic Energy harvesting ritual that resulted in 8 people dying."

The day after the tragedy, Scott issued a statement saying he was "absolutely devastated" by the deaths.

"My fans really mean the world to me and I always wanna leave them with a positive experience and anytime I can make out anything that’s going on, I stop the show and help them get the help they need, you know?" he wrote.

He encouraged those with information to contact authorities, adding, "Everyone continue to just keep your prayers.

"I’m gonna do everything I can to keep you guys updated and keep you guys informed on what’s going on," he concluded.

Meanwhile, the artist is reportedly facing a mountain of lawsuits over allegations that he continued the show despite his fans being in danger.

According to Billboard, a festival attendee, Manuel Souza, filed a petition in Harris County District Court against Scott, organizer ScoreMore and concert company Live Nation.

The lawsuit alleges that Scott and his producing partners placed emphasis on “a motivation for profit at the expense of concertgoers’ health and safety."

The plaintiff's attorney, Steve Kherkher, wrote: “Defendants failed to properly plan and conduct the concert in a safe manner.

“Instead, they consciously ignored the extreme risks of harm to concertgoers, and, in some cases actively encouraged and fomented dangerous behaviors."

Alongside Drake, Scott has also been accused of "inciting mayhem" during the Friday night incident.
