Travis Scott fans are not feeling the prices for the rapper’s Astroworld Festival this year and they’re making it known via social media.
Yesterday, tickets for Travis Scott’s third annual Astroworld Festival went on sale at 10:00 a.m. CT, nearly doubling from the $179 price point in 2019, XXL Magazine reports. This year, access to the event started at $300 plus $65 in fees for the two-day general admission tickets. The two-day Stargazing VIP passes were $725 plus a $69 fee and the top tier tickets, the two-day No Bystander VIP ticket, were $1,000 with a $78 fee. All tickets are currently sold out.

Prospective festival-goers noticed the up-charge very quickly and hopped on Twitter to express their feelings about the payment inflation:

While fans were pissed about the ticket prices, Astroworld Festival managed to sell out in less than an hour. Some resellers used this opportunity to flip the price higher than the $300 general admission cost. Per the media outlet, the festival pays homage to the Six Flags in Houston, which closed in October of 2005. Scott initially announced he would be reviving the theme park to incorporate a musical element in 2018.
Astroworld Fest is set to take place on November 5th and 6th this year in the rapper’s hometown of Houston, Texas. The lineup has yet to be announced, but given the past acts like Gunna, Trippie Redd, Young Thug and more, it’s pretty much guaranteed to have a few heavy hitters in the rap game. Scott, as you may have assumed, has been confirmed as the festival’s headlining performer.
