Travis Scott announces week-long events prior to Astroworld festival


Astroworld Festival


Travis Scott will lead up to his Astroworld festival weekend with a series of Astroworld Week events.

The eight-time Grammy nominee will host sports and educational activities in Houston from Tuesday, November 2, through Monday, November 8, while 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. “Join us thru out the week for a bunch of reveals and product, bringing the ones I build with to the city and I thank them for stepping into this vision.”

Nike Jordan will sponsor a celebrity golf tournament, and also debut an outdoor basketball court with a clinic for 75 fifth graders.

There will also be a youth center connecting high school students with career opportunities in graphic design and fashion design, as well as agriculture, food and nutrition.

As previously reported, Scott announced his Astroworld festival lineup last week.

Young Thug, SZA, Lil Baby, 21 Savage, Roddy Ricch, Baby Keem, Bad Bunny, BIA, Don TolliverMaster P and Earth, Wind & Fire are among the acts performing at the two-day event, taking place on Friday, November 5, and Saturday, November 6, at Houston’s NRG Park. 

After holding the fest in 2018 and 2019, Travis was forced to cancel the 2020 event due to COVID-19. Fifty-thousand people attended the one-day event in 2019. One-hundred thousand are expected for this year’s two-day fest.

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 over 100 prizes that will be awarded.
