The latest A-List tour has announced it’s return amid varying Covid-19 infection rates. In a much welcomed bit of news, to celebrate his April 30th birthday, hip hop artist and merchandise maven Travis Scott announced the return of his spectacular culture carnival that is the Astroworld Festival.
Scott broke the scoop on his Instagram account, gifting his fans for his birthday instead of vice-versa, declaring that this year’s return will be a two-day, in-person affair taking place November 5 – 6 in his native city, Houston, Texas.
We can’t wait to see what the atmosphere will be like as tickets will be available Wed. May 6, at 10am central on AstroworldFest.com. The “Sicko Mode” rapper has been known to provide a wild ride at the hip hop festival that takes its name from the first privately owned, turned Six Flags amusement park in his hometown Houston. This years third annual iteration invites you to “Open your eyes to a whole new universe”.
Cactus Jack also recently released his freshest, impossible-to-obtain Jordan Brand collab, a mediocre pair of “British Khaki” Sixes that have doubled from retail to resale. The marketing mogul surely has been cooking up other exclusive merchandise collaborations in conjunction with the return of Astroworld.
The news lands a an all-but confirmation that we will see the release of his creatively teased, highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Utopia”, at least by the end of summer. It has well been over a year since “Highest In The Room” came out and the fans have digested the leaked “Niagara Falls” and “Vision”.
Scott is a notorious collaborator. The “Utopia” project is rumored to feature Drake, the Weeknd, Young Thug, M.I.A., Roddy Rich, Future and Don Toliver, just to name a lot, so we should the album drop before fall, expect to see at least half of those names at the two-day festival.
Since its inception, the event has been one of marquee status in Hip Hop so all eyes will be on Houston the first week in November 2021. We can be pretty sure that the tour will not be dangled before us like “Utopia” barring another chart-topping campaign from the coronavirus emcee.
Happy Birthday to Travis Scott.
