Fans that have been waiting for this year’s Astroworld Festival can almost say the day is here. Travis Scott has been one of the biggest names in the music industry since he debuted his Astroworld album which escalated him to superstardom. Back in September Scott announced he would bring his second annual music festival back to his hometown of Houston, Texas. Tickets for the show are unfortunately sold out, in fact, they have been sold out for weeks before Travis Scott even announced the Astroworld Festival lineup.
Today he revealed the lineup for the weekend festivities and fans who put their trust in Travis to put together a killer lineup, were right to do so. On top of Travis Scott headlining the event, he has also recruited fellow rappers Migos, Young Thug, Playboi Carti, DaBaby, and Megan Thee Stallion, Pharrell Williams and Gucci Mane are also on the bill. But the names don’t stop there, Memphis rappers Young Dolph and Key Glock are performing together, and there’s also a DJ set from all-conquering Memphis producer Tay Keith on the bill. Brooklyn drill star Pop Smoke, who was recently kicked off of the bill at Rolling Loud New York, by police request, is also performing. Travis really went all out for this one, he’s even bringing some of his own Cactus Jack labelmates Sheck Wes and Don Tolliver to top it all off.
But the killer setlist isn’t the reason everyone is talking about the bill for the festival, in addition to the rap superstars performing this weekend, Travis Scott enlisted the help of Marilyn Manson. Fellow rap star, Lil Uzi Vert, has expressed his admiration for Manson’s music and apparently so does Travis. Since Manson is the only artist not in the genre of rap or hip-hop performing at the festival it should be interesting to see the reaction he gets from fans.
Astroworld will take place tomorrow at Houston’s NRG Park. Anyone in attendance is guaranteed one hell of an event.
