Hulu Releases ‘Astroworld’ Docuseries Weeks After Tragedy

The haste release was criticized by many as insensitive and a “cash grab”.

Not even a month following the tragic events that unfolded at the  Astroworld Music Festival, that which lead to the deaths of 10 people and injuries of many more, Disney-owned streaming platform Hulu has already released a docuseries chronicling the events.

In this new age of viral, streaming-platform-produced documentaries, in the likes of Tiger King, Fyre Fest, and Framing Brittney Spears, it was all but guaranteed that either Amazon, Netflix, or other service would produce a documentary about the events that transpired at the Astroworld Music Festival on November 5, 2021. However, it is clear that many of us were not expecting one less than a month later.

With some of the victims from the tragedy not yet interred, and the investigation still ongoing, Hulu has published a limited-time docuseries entitled Astroworld: Concert From Hell, on its streaming platform.

“Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival was supposed to be the concert of a lifetime,” writes the show’s synopsis on Hulu. “But it turned into a tragic nightmare. A minute-by-minute look at what happened in the crowd, the young victims who were killed, and what happens next.”

The haste release of the documentary – in the middle of multiple investigations, lawsuits, as well as the grieving process for victims of the tragedy – has lead many to criticize the production.

In response to the backlash, the streaming platform reportedly took the documentary down from its site. At the time of writing this article, however, it is still available to watch.
