Travis Scott is taking his Astroworld festival performance around the globe.
La Flame’s concert on Friday at Houston’s NRG Park will be streamed live on Apple Music to 167 countries and regions. The “Sicko Mode” rapper’s show will begin 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Scott also announced Thursday he’s dropping new music at midnight and unveiled the cover art on Instagram, which reads, in part, “The true dystopia is here.”
As previously reported, Young Thug, SZA, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Roddy Ricch, Baby Keem, Bad Bunny, BIA, Don Tolliver, Master P and Earth, Wind & Fire are among the 20 acts set for the two-day Astroworld fest on Friday and Saturday, which is sold out. One hundred thousand people are expected for the third annual festival.
After holding the fest in 2018 and 2019, Travis was forced to cancel the 2020 event due to COVID-19.
In addition to music, the festival will feature an amusement park with more than 30 custom carnival games and rides, including a roller coaster, a Ferris wheel and bumper cars. Jordans from Nike, and tickets to Houston Astros home games will be among the over 100 prizes that will be awarded.
Scott began Astroworld Week on Tuesday, featuring sports and educational activities in Houston raising awareness and funds in support of his nonprofit Cactus Jack Foundation. “Injecting the city with inspirational features and activities for charity is a must,” Travis wrote on Instagram in announcing Astroworld Week.
Nike Jordan is sponsoring a celebrity golf tournament, and also debuting an outdoor basketball court with a clinic for 75 fifth graders.
Scott also launched a youth center, connecting high school students with career opportunities in graphic design, fashion, agriculture, food and nutrition.
