Travis Scott surprised audience members at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami on Saturday night when he made an unannounced appearance with Future.
The 31-year-old rapper appear during the headlining set from Future, 38, toward the end of his performance.
Travis’ mini-set is the closet he has gotten to replicating the size and scope of his set at Astroworld in Houston, Texas, in November of last year. During the performance, a devastating crowd surge occurred, killing eight people and two more who died later in the hospital from compression asphyxiation.

According to Setlist.fm, Travis performed on Hold That Heat, followed by his songs Antidote, No Bystanders and Goosebumps.
During that latter song, the younger rapper appeared to have the stage all to himself, according to video posted to social media.

He apparently capped off his guest appearance by joining in with the headliner on Future’s song March Madness.
It was a surprisingly lengthy visit for Travis, and the high-profile performance may suggest he’s trying to get back into the public’s graces, as he has avoided festivals and most high-profile performances since his Astroworld debacle.
According to TMZ, those close to Travis blamed logistical problems and a lack of time for him not officially joining the festival lineup.
After Kanye West — who was the original headliner for Friday night — dropped out and was replaced by his friend-turned-nemesis Kid Cudi, several fans complained on social media that Travis Scott would have been a better replacement.
But Tariq Cherif, the co-founder of Rolling Loud, claimed in an Instagram comment that the venue, the Hard Rock Stadium, wouldn’t allow Scott to perform due to the deaths during his Astroworld set.
‘Tried to convince Ye to stay on the lineup but he wasn’t having it,’ he originally wrote, before adding, ‘Venue won’t allow Travis because of astroworld deaths.’

Conflicting stories: A Rolling Loud co-founder claimed that the venue wouldn’t allow Travis to perform due to the ‘Astroworld deaths,’ but he walked that back and the festival claimed he turned down an official spot due to a lack of time for prep

A Rolling Loud spokesperson subsequently denied that that was the case and claimed that Scott ‘couldn’t work in such a short time.’
Cherif went on to delete his viral comments and claimed to TMZ that they were ‘not accurate.’
Travis’ return to the stage comes as his partner Kylie Jenner denied that a wedding registry found online was for the couple.
Her sister Kourtney Kardashian had also denied that a social media account claiming to be from her son Mason was actually his. The account had claimed that Kylie and Travis were on the verge of tying the knot.
The couple share two children: four-year-old Stormi Webster and a five-month-old son, who was initially named Wolf, though Kylie and Travis opted to change his name and haven’t revealed the final choice.
