Travis Scott To Make A Festival Appearance For The First Time Since Astroworld Tragedy
Travis Scott has announced his first festival appearance since the Astroworld tragedy, appearing at three installments of the Primavera Festival in South America this fall. The long-running festival, which launched in Spain but has since expanded to Southern California and South America, is being held in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Santiago, Chile and also features Bjork, Lorde and Arctic Monkeys
Sources say that he will be performing at “major” summer festivals in the summer, presumably in the U.S., but these are the first announced appearances.
Scott has kept a relatively low profile in the months since 10 people died when the crowd surged during his headlining set at his Astroworld festival in November last year. Although he was originally scheduled to headline the Coachella festival this year, his appearance was canceled in the wake of the tragedy, along with multiple other festival slots.
Scott offered to pay the funeral costs for the victims and has spoken emotionally on the tragedy, which led to the cancelation of several high-profile concert appearances and a collaboration with the fashion brand Dior. Last month he announced $5 million in community-focused initiatives through his newly launched Project Heal, a long-term series of philanthropy and investment efforts.
