Travis Scott Announces Dates For Astroworld Festival – Tickets Available!
Travis Scott‘s Astroworld is scheduled to return to Houston for a two-day festival on Friday, November 5 and Saturday, November 6.
The rapper announced that his festival’s return via Instagram on his 29th birthday. This will be the third Astroworld, but the first to span two days (the past festivals in 2019 and 2018 were only one day).
“FOR THIS BDAY ALL I WANT IS RAGE MAN WE BEEN LOCKED IN A HOUSE FOR SOMETIME NOW AND I BEEN BANGING MY HEAD AROUND TRYNNA TO GET BACK TO IT I BEEN WANTING TO SHARE AND EXPERINCE WITH ALL THE OTHER LIKE MINDED CHAOTIC RAGER LIKE ME FOR SOME TIME NOW.

Astroworld tickets went May 5. Fans should plan to buy their tickets as soon as they can as prices will rise as the festival gets closer and the festival has sold out before the lineup was announced past years. The festival lineup has not yet been confirmed, but Scott is set to headline the event. Past festival lineups included artists like Post Malone, Pharrell Williams, Da Baby, Lil Wayne, Playboi Carti and Megan Thee Stallion.
In 2019, Astroworld became the largest music festival in Houston and the largest single-day artist-curated festival in the United States, according to a press release.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival will go towards Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation, which helps “empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long-term success.”
The 2021 festival’s theme is “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe,” which is evident in the new promo image, shared by Scott on Instagram. The image shows an electrified eyeball watching a rollercoaster get sucked into a black hole. The festival is held across the street from the now-defunct AstroWorld, an amusement park from Scott’s childhood. Every year, the festival aims to bring some of that amusement park feeling back to the area with its theming, even bringing in rides.
