Travis Scott’s first show back at a festival was last night at the Rolling Loud California festival. It was only for a short time. A report from Variety, which came out on March 4, said that Travis Scott’s headlining set at the 2023 Rolling Loud California music festival had to be cut short because the festival had a strict 11 p.m. curfew.
A Rolling Loud representative told the source that Travis Scott’s set was supposed to begin at 9:55 p.m., giving the Houston rapper an hour and five minutes to perform. But Travis took the stage at 10:30, so he only had 30 minutes to play. To be clear, Rolling Loud did not stop his set in the middle of it.

Travis was in the middle of playing his 2018 hit “Sicko Mode” when the music stopped at 11 p.m. After the show was over, video screens above the stage showed a message that said goodbye and told people to get home safely. A fan made a video of the end of Travis’ show, which you can watch below.

Travis kept playing even though his music was cut. He then apologized to the crowd and told them he had to leave the stage. “I really appreciate it, and I love you all. I’d like to do more, but they’re making me leave “People in the crowd booed as he spoke.
But Travis was able to play 10 songs, including fan favorites like “Highest in the Room” and “Antidote,” in his 30-minute set. At the three-day music festival, everyone was most excited to see Travis Scott.
It was the first time the rapper and producer had been on a festival stage since the Astroworld tragedy in November 2021. Ten people died and hundreds were hurt at the Houston festival when a crowd surge caused people to suffocate while Travis was on stage.

Since the accident, more than 200 people who were at the concert and were hurt physically, emotionally, or mentally have sued Travis. So far, the artist, who is 31 years old, has settled one lawsuit out of court with the family of 21-year-old Axel Acosta, who died at the festival.
