Travis Scott Returns to Astroworld After Eight People Were Killed

Travis Scott returned to Astroworld festival a week after eight people were killed during crowd surges, performing with great glee. The Houston rapper has long been known as an expert curator and curator of atmosphere; be it radio or live performances. Travis is first and foremost a showman; tonight as he opened up its main stage for his second album release this year, that’s exactly what he delivered.

Scott dubs his audience ‘Ragers,’ and they do not disappoint with an engaging first act of the evening: Dave Chappelle has traveled all the way from Ohio just for this one-night show, and delivered an energetic proclamation: “Travis has conquered the world and brought it home to you, Houston”; to which an audience of 50K-strong attendees stood appreciatively dressed in official Astroworld merchandise they spent hours queuing up for earlier in the day.

Migos took to the main stage next, keeping the crowd laughing with their quick-fire collaborations on ‘Sicko Mode’ and new single ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing’. Their rapid-fire collaborations kept everyone smiling throughout; there was one more surprise waiting for Migos fans: Kanye West made his grand entrance with a huge cheer from the audience as he launched into “Follow Me”, including its catchphrase of ‘It’s so crazy!”.

Astroworld was an enormous success for Cactus Jack Records artist 21 Savage when released on August 3, 2018. It debuted at number 1 on Billboard 200 chart and included many high-profile collaborators such as Quavo, Kid Cudi, Gunna and Swae Lee among many more.

After 2016’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight and 2017’s Quavo-collaboration Huncho Jack, this rapper showcases his skills as an adept composer of genre-defying soundscapes on this album. As such, its eleven tracks deliver an exhilarating yet chaotic collection that captures the spirit of New Orleans.

Astroworld evokes the now-closed Six Flags theme park of Houston through the festival site. There’s a ferris wheel and multiple fairground rides as well as a 35-foot-high pop-up planetarium featuring unreleased Travis music; fans also take selfies all day with giant inflatable replicas of his head!
