Hip-hop superstar Travis Scott announces return of wildly popular Astroworld Festival
This article originally appeared on CultureMap.
Last year, Travis Scott launched the Astroworld Festival in his hometown of Houston, and it was a smashing success. (40,000 were reportedly in attendance.) So, now, it's time for him to get things going for the second annual fest, happening on Saturday, November 9.
The festival will return to NRG Park, just across the street from where the now-defunct Six Flags amusement park Scott named his double-platinum 2018 album after once stood. Scott is once again keeping the list of performers close to the vest.
He didn't share the names of last year's performers — which included Lil Wayne, Post Malone, Young Thug, Sheck Wes, and others — until the day before the fest. But we already know this year's headliner: Scott, of course.
A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the festival's official charity partner, Workshop Houston. This nonprofit creates transformative educational opportunities through hands-on, project-based learning — including lessons in music production and recording, robotics and computer programming, fashion and graphic design, as well as tutoring and academic support.
