Stampedes Breaks Out at Lil Weezyana Fest Causing Chaos Amongst Crowd

Last night during Lil Wayne‘s Lil Weezyana Fest, social media blew up with videos and photos of two separate stampedes during the event. Both broke out following rapper Meek Mill‘s performance. Police on-site were unsure of the exact cause of the stampede, but attendees on social media explained that they thought it was gunfire or a fight. It was neither. 

During the chaos, attendees crashed into food trucks and concession stands, causing staffers to ditch their posts. Some attendees walked away with liquor bottles from the stands, according to other news reports. 

 

 

The show still went on, however, and Travis Scott and Lil Wayne closed out the evening. DJ Khaled, Future, Choppa, and Cheeky Blakk all joined on-stage as special guests. 

This year was the first year for the festival’s new location at UNO Lakefront Arena. Previous years saw the event at Champion’s Square.
