For those anticipating a chance to see Travis Scott in action, headlining the music event of his own curation, Astroworld Festival, you either had to act fast or watch your life flash before your eyes. Tickets for the 2021 edition of Astroworld Festival sold out in a matter of minutes, with all 100,000 spots being booked up in under an hour.

What makes the sellout all the more impressive is that it comes before an official performer lineup was even announced. In fact, both previous iterations of Astroworld sold out before the reveal of the performance lineup. Which is a shame, given that past festivals have featured a diverse list of musicians like Pharrell, Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone, Da Baby, and Rosalía, to name a few.

Tickets went on sale at 10 AM CT, eventually selling out quickly enough to become the fastest in Astroworld history. The festival will take place over an expanded two day format over November 5 and 6, hopefully at a time when the country will be a much safer space for performances and concerts. The theme for this year’s festival is “Open Your Eyes To A Whole New Universe.”

Taking place at the NRG Park in Houston, Texas (Scott’s hometown), this year’s festival will follow up Astroworld 2019, which attracted an audience of 50,000. The festival will feature Scott taking the stage, maybe even performing songs from his upcoming album Utopia (although a release date hasn’t been announced yet), which features the number one singles “Highest in the Room” and “Franchise.” Proceeds from the festival will be going to the Cactus Jack Foundation, a charity Scott himself founded.
