Travis Scott took New York City by storm tonight with an energetic set at this year’s Governors Ball Festival. Though his performance was hindered by the rain, Scott still managed to keep his fans happy during his first headlining set for the festival. To kick off the show, Scott’s set began with an amusement park-inspired introduction video before the stage’s screen was engulfed in flames. The rapper then broke out into his unreleased Bkorn and Bwheezy-produced song “Stargazing,” which he debuted back in May during his Rolling Loud Festival set, and encouraged the crowd to start moshing.
Scott then went into Days Before Rodeo‘s “Mamacita,” “Way Back,” his “4 AM” collaboration with 2 Chainz and his “Dark Knight Dummo” track with Trippie Redd before he told his huge audience, “Okay New York City, that was a nice warm up.” As the rain started pouring down harder, Scott began singing “Butterfly Effect” and then went into his SZA collaborative track “Love Galore.” Scott finished off his set with his other hits including “90210,” “Skyfall,” “Upper Echelon,” “Watch,” “Antidote,” “Sky Walker” and cuts from Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, his joint project with Quavo.

The rapper also stated he wants to build roller coasters for his next tour, which he hopes will include an entire amusement park, and brought out Houston Rockets basketball player James Harden to the stage to the surprise of fans.
In case you’ve missed it, Travis Scott says songs on Astroworld are a bit “weirder” than his previous albums.
