Travis Scott Arrested After Telling Fans To Rush Lollapalooza Stage

The rapper's set lasted under 10 minutes.

CHICAGO -- Any fans hoping to see Travis Scott onstage at Lollapalooza on Saturday (August 1) were out of luck if they showed up late, because the show ended up getting shut down early.

The rapper was arrested, according to ABC7 in Chicago, after telling fans to rush past security and barricades and onto the stage.

A video posted on Twitter captures some of the apparent chaos, which resulted in the set being shut down after only five minutes. The 23-year-old can be heard chanting, "We want rage."

And this picture gives a glimpse of the aftermath, which looks to have included dozens of fans joining Travis onstage.

"The performer played one song and then began telling fans to come over the barricades," the Office of Emergency Management said in a statement, as reported by ABC. "Due to the security's quick response, the situation was remedied immediately and no fans were injured. The performer fled the scene and was taken into custody a short while later."

The rapper was reportedly charged with disorderly conduct.
