The sold-out Astroworld music festival drew more than 50,000 people to the parking lot at NRG Park, a complex with stadiums, an arena and a convention center. Eight people were killed in the massive crowd surge and three people remain in critical condition.

Authorities launched a criminal investigation and more than 20 lawsuits, accusing organizers of proper staffing and crowd control, have been filed.
