The city of Houston, Texas, has named November 18 “Astroworld Day” in honour of Travis Scott.
Named after his album Astroworld, the city’s Mayor, Sylvester Turner announced the honour following Scott’s inaugural Astroworld Festival, which brought 40,000 fans to Houston.
Scott accepted the proclamation recognising him as an ambassador for the arts, education, and youth initiatives at Houston’s city hall.
Thank you, @trvisXX for stopping by city hall the day after your successful #AstroworldFest2018 . Your message to the high school students in the room left a great impression. #TravisScott pic.twitter.com/EePpeNsfiW

In his acceptance speech, Scott said that the inspiration behind the festival and LP was Six Flag’s now-closed Astroworld in Houston.
The first Astroworld Festival took place on Sunday at Houston’s NRG Park. The day-long event featured performances by Scott, Post Malone, Lil Wayne, Rae Sremmurd, and more.
