Travis Scott and Bryson Tiller turn The Dome into a moshpit for Castle Lite Unlocks
What’s it take to turn The Dome into a moshpit? A little bit of Travis Scott and Bryson Tiller it would appear. With Castle Lite being the major key when it comes to hip hop events in the country, the latest in its Unlocks series brought with it the skrr skrrest of all trap rappers.
Walking into The Dome, you are simply awestruck at the level of production. Staying true to both the artists’ visions and the brand persona, the stage represented an iced out mountain range which opened up – or unlocked – to reveal the ‘night show’.
Bryson Tiller was up first with a stripped down set that saw flanked only by his drummer and DJ with a digital screen beaming a trippy magnum opus of visuals. He ripped through all the fan favourites including “Exchange,” “Don’t” and “Sorry, Not Sorry.”
Straight after him, DJ Vigilante segued the show on its way to Travis Scott. What felt like a curious decision made sense very quickly. An entire forest was being erected for Travis Scott’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight-inspired set. Think forest with larger-than-life bird cages and stage for strip teases and you’ve got it.
Travis Scott was in supreme form, owning the stage like a rockstar — and even screaming like one. The show kicked off with “The Ends” but he wasn’t shy to hit us with that new new either. He set an earthquake through The Dome with “Butterfly Effect” from his forthcoming Astroworld album. Seriously. When I said earlier The Dome turned into a moshpit, I was kidding. Look at this.
Other fan favourites included “3,500” and “Mamacita” but there was a really special moment in the show where Scott performed a cover; none other than Kanye West’s “Father, Stretch My Hands.”
