Rapper Travis Scott is bringing his new Astroworld album to life this fall, as he announced on Friday that he’ll be teaming up with ScoreMore Shows to produce a one-day music festival under the same name in Houston, Texas on Nov. 17 at NRG Park. Appropriately named “Astroworld Festival,” the single-day music event will take place right near where an amusement park by the same name once existed starting back in the 1960s and 70s before it was eventually purchased by Six Flags.
The elaborate cover art featured on Scott’s new studio album was focused around a theme park-like environment setting, complete with an enormous inflatable head of the popular rapper where guests could presumably walk in through its mouth/entrance. The announcement on Friday did not reveal which artists aside from Scott would be performing, but general admission tickets will be going on sale starting this Monday, Aug. 13. Scott’s album featured vocal cameos and production contributions from artists ranging from John Mayer and Thundercat to James Blake, Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams and The Weeknd, so fans should be optimistic that some very special guests could be appearing on its inaugural lineup poster whenever it is eventually revealed.
“Travis, myself and our entire Cactus Jack team couldn’t be more excited to finally reveal our plans for the first-ever Astroworld Festival,” Scott’s management said about their upcoming event in a statement. “Our ultimate goal in launching this Fest is to bring some well-deserved recognition to Travis’ hometown of Houston, the place that has made him both the man and creative artist he is today.”
In addition to releasing his first studio album since 2016’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, Scott also recently performed at Chicago’s Lollapalooza and Montreal’s Osheaga Festival over the past two weekends.
