Travis Scott to Co-Headline Festival Honoring Virgil Abloh

One-day music festival Mirror Mirror will honor the legacy of late designer Virgil Abloh, with Travis Scott and Skepta as co-headliners.

Back on the music festival is Travis Scott, who will co-headline Mirror Mirror in December. The festival will honor the legacy of late designer Virgil Abloh with Skepta set to co-headline alongside Scott and Yves Tumor, Pedro, Venus X, Benji B, Bambii, Rampa and Acyde also slated to perform. Mirror Mirror will be held at the FPL Solar Amphitheater at Bayfront Park in Miami on December 3, less than two weeks after tickets go on sale today, with all net proceeds going towards the Virgil Abloh Foundation.

Virgil Abloh Securities, a creative company founded by Abloh will hold the one-day festival. Abloh, who was men’s artistic director of Louis Vuitton, died in November 2021 after a private battle with cancer. The designer founded streetwear brand Off-White and previously served as Ye’s creative director.

“Virgil had the ability to bring everyone together to create magic,” said Shannon Abloh, Abloh’s wife and Virgil Abloh Securities CEO and managing director. “With his close collaborators, we wanted to bring everyone together to celebrate Virgil–his legacy, his passion, and his care for others. He believed his real work was championing others and we will continue his work supporting youth in the arts with the launch of the Virgil Abloh Foundation in 2023.”

Scott’s Mirror Mirror performance is part of the artist’s gradual return to shows after the Astroworld tragedy last November. The rapper will co-headline Rolling Loud California in March alongside Future and Playboi Carti.
