Meek Mill tried to tame the crowd during his performance, saying, “I need everybody to be cool. No pushing or we’re gonna shut this s— down.”
And shortly after Meek Mill left the stage, a large stampede occurred because audience members thought somebody was firing a gun.
According to witnesses, over 15,000 people ran for safety, destroying parts of the stage. A medical tent and concession stands near the stage were overrun, and sections of fencing were pushed down. The medical tent was left in tatters on the ground.

The wood frame and sheet metal barriers that fronted several beverage booths on both sides of the main stage were destroyed; tables were overturned in a frenzied rush.
Unfortunately, some of the people in the crowd took advantage of the chaos and looted the concession stands as people fled.

A few were reported to have fallen unconscious due to the unbearable heat. Both the VIP and GA sections of the 15,000-person festival were apparently aggressive and jam-packed.
