Travis Scott kicked off the third edition of his much-awaited Astroworld Festival on November 5 at NRG Park in Houston, Texas and it soon sent the hip-hop fans into a frenzy. The ‘Highest in the Room’ hitmaker surprised the audience at the sold-out venue by bringing his close friend and collaborator Drake on stage.
The 29-year-old rap icon had recently collaborated with the Toronto hip-hop heavyweight on the song ‘Fair Trade’ for the latter’s sixth studio album ‘Certified Lover Boy’. The duo belted out the same on day one of the music festival. Drake, who looked dapper in a military outfit, easily stole the show as the crowd went berserk after seeing him landing on stage. Fans who could not mark their attendance at AstroFest expressed their disappointment while funnily questioning their decision-making skills.

Drake surprises fans at Astroworld Festival
Astroworld Festival for the first time will be held for two days i.e. November 5-6 and Drake made sure he upped the ante on the very first day. The rapper thrilled the audience with his new chart-topping numbers from his album ‘Certified Lover Boy’ while, Travis too kept the fans hooked with his recent bangers. Drake, while addressing the audience asked them to give a shoutout to Travis as he dubbed him as one of the “brightest minds.”
Singer and songwriter SZA too took over the stage before Drake landed on stage. The latest edition of the music festival will see artistes like Roddy Ricch, Lil Baby, Don Toliver, and others taking over the stage. The festival also made news for the wrong reason after a stampede-like situation was reported at the venue. Several concert-goers were later reported injured and a few also lost their lives.
Astroworld Festival was first launched by Travis back in 2018. The mega event was canceled in 2020 due to the unfortunate Covid-19 pandemic. The music festival was last held in November 2019, and it became the largest single-day artist-curated music festival in the country when over 50,000 fans flocked to witness the legendary show. The 2019 edition saw artists like Post Malone, Rosalia, Pharrell Williams, DaBaby, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Playboi Carti, and Megan Thee Stallion hitting the stage.
