Travis Scott to Headline South America Festival Months After Astroworld Tragedy

Meanwhile, the 'Goosebumps' rapper will make his first public performance since the disaster on May 7, where he is set to take the stage of Miami's E11EVEN during Formula One Grand Prix.

AceShowbiz - Travis Scott (II) is not entirely canceled after all. Five months after the Astroworld tragedy, the "Goosebumps" hitmaker was announced as a headliner of the Primavera Sound festival in South America later this year.

Travis is set to perform in front of more than 100,000 people at the festivals. The emcee will kick off his set on November 6 alongside Lorde in Sao Paulo, Brazil, before hitting the stage with Charli XCX, Father John Misty and Mitski in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 12.

On the next day, the "SICKO MODE" spitter will greet fans in Santiago, Chile. His set will be followed by Icelandic singer/songwriter Bjork's.

On May 7, Travis is scheduled to entertain crowds at Miami's E11EVEN during Formula One Grand Prix. Fans can purchase tickets now, starting from $150 to $250. It was unveiled that the tickers are almost sold out.

The show will mark Travis' first public performance since the Astroworld catastrophe. However, the baby daddy of Kylie Jenner has played some private VIP for the past few months.

In March, Travis performed at a private pre-Oscars party in Los Angeles. Among celebrities who attended the event were Leonardo DiCaprio, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, YG as well as Tobey Maguire.

Travis has been staying low-key after his Astroworld festival in Houston left 10 people dead and dozens injured. He has since teamed up with leaders in government and music to launch an initiative dedicated to making concerts safer in the future called HEAL.

In a statement, the initiative is billed as a "multi-tier, longterm series of community-focused philanthropy and investment efforts." About the project, Travis said, "Over the past few months I've been taking the time and space to grieve, reflect, and do my part to heal my community. Most importantly, I want to use my resources and platform moving forward towards actionable change."

"My team and I created Project HEAL to take much needed action towards supporting real solutions that make all events the safest spaces they can possibly be. I will always honor the victims of the Astroworld tragedy who remain in my heart forever," he added. "This program will be a catalyst to real change and I can't wait to introduce the rest of the technology and ideas we've been working on."
