Travis Scott has announced his first festival appearances since the Astroworld tragedy, appearing at three installments of the Primavera Festival in South America this fall. The long-running festival, which launched in Spain but has since expanded to Southern California and South America, is being held in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; and Santiago, Chile and also features Bjork, Lorde and Arctic Monkeys (see the full lineup below).
Sources tell Variety that he will be performing at “major” summer festivals in the summer, presumably in the U.S., but these are the first announced appearances. Contacted by Variety, a rep for Scott declined comment.
In Chile, Scott is appearing the same night as Bjork, whom he singled out as a major recent influence during an interview with Variety early last year.
Scott has kept a relatively low profile in the months since 10 people died when the crowd surged during his headlining set at his Astroworld festival in November. Although he was originally scheduled to headline the Coachella festival this year, his appearance was canceled in the wake of the tragedy, along with multiple other festival slots.
