At the 2019 Roots Picnic, this is what had fans running for their lives.
The unexpected upheaval that occurred during the 2019 Roots Picnic in Philadelphia has already been widely reported.
The day started off well, and everyone in attendance was having the time of their lives until just after 6 p.m., when they had the most terrifying experience of their lives.
A stampede of people started rushing out of the building after a false gun warning, and seeing as I was there, it was an experience I will never forget.
The Roots Picnic takes place every year in Philadelphia.
Since 2008, the Roots Picnic has brought together some of the most well-known R&B and soul artists to date in Philadelphia.
This was my first year, and I was excited to see artists I’d been listening to in the car for the previous few weeks!
There was already a line of people waiting for a good spot on the lawn when I arrived at Fairmount Park shortly after 12:30 p.m.
Everyone was ready to spread out their blankets, grab a cold beverage, and relax while listening to their favorite musicians perform hit songs.
My family and I were near the Fairmount Stage, which included some of the world’s most well-known musicians.
We weren’t too close, but we were close enough to see the tens of thousands of people dancing around the stage to the music.
The eleventh annual Roots Picnic was held in Philadelphia, and the festival had never had any problems until this year.
As a result of the stampede, several people were injured.
21 Savage, the rapper, took to the main stage at 6 p.m. and started performing some of his most well-known tracks.
Since everybody was living in the moment, no one expected complete chaos in the next few minutes.
When a swarm of people started running, my family and I were just sitting on our blanket listening to 21 Savage… The plot has been simplified in this summary. I hope you found it entertaining.
