Travis Scott is gearing up for the second installation of his Astroworld Festival. The Houston rapper is bringing back the live experience to his beloved city for a second year in a row. The Scott-curated occasion — which takes its name from Houston’s closed-down Six Flags AstroWorld theme park and of course, his 2018 album of the same name — is a wild ride of a festival.
Following the success of last year’s inaugural Astroworld Festival, this one promises to be one for the books. Once again the festival will return Houston’s NRG Park on Saturday, November 9. While Highsnobiety will of course be on the ground covering the fest, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about Astroworld Festival so you can wise up before the promised day.
Here’s everything you need to know about Astroworld Festival 2019.
Travis Scott announces Astroworld Festival 2019
Travis Scott announced the second annual installation of Astroworld Festival on September 27. Tickets immediately went on sale following the announcement. The rapper claimed this edition would be, “A lot crazier and bit more rampage.”
Date & location of Astroworld Festival 2019
Astroworld Festival 2019 is going down on Saturday, November 9. Just like last year, the event will take place at NRG Park in Houston, Texas, right across the street from where the AstroWorld theme park used to be.
Astroworld Festival 2019 tickets are sold out
Gear up for another case of FOMO, because the festival is already sold out — even the $250 VIP packages are gone. In late October, Scott shared the news that tickets had sold out in a matter of weeks. You might still have a chance copping tickets in resale, but these are definitely way more pricey than the original $89.
More than 50,000 fans are expected to attend this year for a day of music and rides. As we previously reported, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to Workshop Houston, which provides educational opportunities for children in the area.
Astroworld Festival 2019 lineup
A day before the event, Travis Scott has taken to Instagram to share this year’s lineup. Fans can look forward to appearances by Pharrell, Gucci Mane,Young Thug, Migos, Rosalía, Tay Keith, Pop Smoke, Young Dolph, Key Glock, Sheck Wes, DaBaby, Marilyn Manson, Megan Thee Stallion, Playboi Carti, Don Toliver, and Travis Scott himself.
One rumor circulating is that Drake will perform at the festival. The Canadian rapper has been spotted in Houston this week.
Astroworld Festival 2019 Merch
Last year, in true Scott fashion, the rapper released corresponding Astroworld Festival merch following the event. We expect no less from La Flame this time around, so keep your eyes peeled on Scott’s webstore.
