Via Astroworld Festival:
The event has now become the largest single-day artist-curated music festival in the country, as well as the largest music festival in Scott’s hometown of Houston, which this year hosted over50,000 fans from across the globe for the special celebration of hip-hop, pop music and Houston culture. Attendees included guests from nearly every state in the US, as well as international travelers from more than five other countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, and beyond.
ASTROWORLD once again sold out for a second year prior to a lineup reveal, with Scott revealing the lineup as a surprise to die-hard fans the day before the festival.Scott himself solely curated the music lineup, which was comprised of artists that he hand-selected to perform, putting special emphasis on expanding to genres beyond just hip-hop and R&B.
Travis Scott’s electrifying performance on Saturday closed out the festival with a mix of his most popular hits and personal favorite tracks, as well as new unreleased music. The set also included a variety of special guests like previously announced festival performers Migos and YoungThug; as well as surprise performersKanye West,Swae Lee (of Rae Sremmurd)andGunna; and a special onstage introduction from comedian Dave Chappelle. His set also debuted a brand-new multi-million-dollar stage production featuring a post-apocalyptic design, a theme that was consistently featured around the festival grounds.
