Travis Scott announces 2021 Astroworld Festival lineup

Previously sold out festival expands capacity with limited tickets

Texas-born, GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-platinum hip hop artist and business mogul, Travis Scott has just announced the full music lineup for his third annual Astroworld Festival. In celebration, Scott has also released a very limited number of additional tickets to the event, which are on sale now via Ticketmaster.

Besides Scott, 21 Savage, Baby Keem, Bad Bunny, BIA, Chief Keen, Don Toliver, Earth Wind & Fire, Houston All-Stars, Lil Baby, Master P, Roddy Ricch, Sheck Wes, Soyafgo, SZA, Teezo Touchdown, Toro Y Moi, Tame Impala, Young Thug, and Yves Tumor are all set to perform.

The largest artist-curated music festival in the world, as well as the largest music event in Scott’s hometown of Houston, will return soon to NRG Park on Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th. Similar to years past, fans at Astroworld will soon be treated to a festival experience like no other as every detail is an extension of Scott’s personal creativity and unique vision.

To commemorate the lineup news, the festival has also been released a limited number of two-day GA tickets to the 2021 event, which are on sale now via Ticketmaster. Prices begin at $349.99, although fans are encouraged to purchase immediately as ticket supply is extremely limited.

During the general ticket on-sale last spring, the entire weekend event sold out in under one hour without a music performance lineup attached. Scott’s festival has sold out in advance of the lineup reveal every year since inception, although 2021 set the record for the fastest sell-out yet.

Continuing a nod to the NRG’s previous tenant (Six Flags AstroWorld), the festival has again invested significant real estate to build out an amusement park and carnival footprint for the 2021 event. This year’s fest will feature more than 30 custom carnival games and rides, including a roller coaster, Ferris wheel, and bumper cars – all of which are designed to entertain fans when they need a break from music.

Fans participating in the carnival games will have the opportunity to win one of 100+ different custom Astroworld prizes, which include limited-edition items that won’t be available anywhere else.

Participating carnival sponsors Raising Cane’s, Nike’s Jordan, and the Houston Astros have all kicked in grand prizes as well. These special prizes include the opportunity to eat free Cane’s for a year, score a pair of limited edition Jordans, or win tickets to a future baseball game.

Over 100,000 fans from across the globe are slated to attend the third-year music festival, which returns to Scott’s hometown of Houston. The 2021 event features an expanded two-day format due to overwhelming demand from fans.

With a new creative theme, “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe”, the critically-acclaimed rapper turned mainstream culture phenom will once again curate and produce his very own larger-than-life multi-stage music festival in his hometown of Houston, while also bringing back the beloved spirit and nostalgia of the legendary and now-defunct amusement park – AstroWorld ­– that Scott visited countless times as a child.

During the festival’s last iteration in November 2019, the one-day event played host to over 50,000 fans from across the globe for Scott’s special celebration of hip hop, pop music, and Houston culture. As Scott himself solely curates and hand-selects the festival’s music lineup, past festival performances have featured some of today’s most sought-after music acts beyond just hip-hop and R&B including Post Malone, Rosalia, Pharrell Williams, Lil Wayne, Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, and Playboi Carti, among many others.

A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the festival’s official charity partner, Cactus Jack Foundation. Founded by Scott, the nonprofit organization seeks to empower and enrich the lives of youth by providing access to education and creative resources to ensure long-term success.
