Travis Scott Reopens an Old Houston Attraction – Sort of – During the Astroworld Festival

Travis Scott will host Astroworld Festival in his hometown of Houston on Saturday, November 9th!

Founded by the rapper, Astroworld Festival is a music fest curated by the Houston native himself. Astroworld Festival takes place across the street from the former home of Astroworld, an amusement park opened in downtown Houston in 1968. Astroworld was originally built to complement the nearby Astrodome, the world's first multi-purpose domed sports arena, referred to by many as the "eighth wonder of the world."

The festival ultimately seeks to bring back the beloved spirit and nostalgia of Astroworld - making a childhood dream of Travis' come true. Residents of Houston and travelers from across the globe are now able to experience the magic that was Astroworld. Scott will be the festival’s headlining performer, joined by a variety of other big-name musicians.

A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the official Astroworld Festival charity partner, Workshop Houston. Workshop Houston 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.

A Houston-born hip-hop artist and producer affiliated with Kanye West's GOOD Music and T.I.'s Grand Hustle, Travis Scott became known during the early 2010s for his heavily Auto-Tuned half-sung/half-rapped vocal style. Within seven years of his mainstream arrival via West's Cruel Summer compilation (2012), on which he served as co-producer and featured artist, Scott attained numerous platinum singles as a lead artist, including a streak of four that began with "Antidote," a single off his number three hit debut album, Rodeo (2015).
