Immediately following recent reports about Travis Scott‘s music comeback, the rapper’s return to the festival stage was officially announced on Wednesday. 

Scott will hit the road this fall as a headliner for the multi-nation Primavera Festival in South America. The tour will make stops in Brazil, Argentina and Chile in November and will also feature pop artists Charli XCX and Lorde and alt rock legend Björk

The upcoming concert series will be Scott’s first festival performance since his last major headlining gig, Astroworld, in November of last year. During the wildly popular 2021 music fest, which drew upwards of 50,000 fans, Travis Scott performed while the crowd surged toward the stage, resulting in ten deaths and hundreds of injuries. 

As a result of the tragedy, Scott was hit with lawsuits from more than 100 victims and the rapper was removed from upcoming performances, including his scheduled appearance at the 2022 Coachella Music & Arts festival. While the “Antidote” rapper didn’t hit the main stage at Coachella this year, he did reportedly attend a private after-party, where he performed five of his songs. 

Scott offers to pay for funeral costs of the Astroworld victims and also launched Project Heal, a series of community-focused philanthropy and investment efforts.

In advance of Coachella earlier this month, billboards for Scott’s long-awaited album, Utopia, appeared in California. The boards could signify that the rapper’s fourth studio project is on the way soon.
