Though the ASTROWORLD Festival went down nearly two weeks ago, there are plenty of fans who have yet to overcome the FOMO. And that's completely understandable.
The inaugural event boasted a star-studded lineup that included hip-hop acts like Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Post Malone, Rae Sremmurd, and, of course, the man behind the festival, Travis Scott. One of the most memorable sets, however, was from Sheck Wes, who delivered an incendiary performance of his hit record "Mo Bamba."
The Harlem MC brought a level of energy that clearly infected the 40,000-plus crowd—or perhaps it was the crowd's energy that infected him? Either way, Wes completely killed it. His performance even featured him jumping into the audience during the second verse. Concert-goers, obviously, lost their collective sh*t, holding him above the swarm while singing the chorus.
ASTROWORLD Fest went down at NRG Park in Houston, Scott's hometown. The sold-out event was inspired by the real-life AstroWorld amusement park that Scott would frequent in his childhood. It included a giant Ferris wheel, a drop tower, a carousel, and 35-foot-high planetarium, as well as park-style games.
The festival has since been described as a love letter to Houston and the city's music scene.
"Travis is the heart of the city right now—DJ Screw is the soul of the city—and he's keeping this town on the map," Texas rapper Bun B told Complex at the event. "People from all over the country, all over the world, came here to be in Houston because out of all the shows on the ASTROWORLD Tour, this is the one that's most special to him."
