Travis Scott’s third-annual Astroworld Festival kickstarted in Houston today, November 5, 2021. Thousands of fans flocked to the venue but little did they know that Drake was making a surprise appearance.
The two-day festival is currently taking place at NRG Park and Stadium complex. All the proceeds from the event will be directed towards Travis’ Cactus Jack Foundation.
