Travis Scott to headline Vegas festival in a first since Astroworld tragedy

Travis Scott is slated to make his debut appearance as a headliner at the Day N Vegas event, months after a crowd surge at his Astroworld concert killed ten people and wounded dozens more.

According to Variety, the rapper will headline the event, which will take place at the Las Vegas Festival Ground from September 2 to 4.

Last year, Scott was also set to play at the Day N Vegas festival, but his appearance was canceled due to the crowd surge at Astroworld; he was supposed to perform a little over a week after the tragedy and was replaced by Billie Eilish.

Scott’s first and only US festival appearance since Astroworld is Day N Vegas; however, he has already stated that he would perform at the Primavera Sound festival in South America.

The first performance will take place on November 6 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, followed by performances on November 12 in Argentina and November 13 in Chile.
