People Are Going Insane for Travis Scott's Store in Rice Village

Last year's Astroworld Fest pop-up is now a permanent store called Space Village.

Days after a wild, sold-out second-annual Astroworld Fest that brought everyone from Marilyn Manson to Kanye West to Houston, Travis Scott's ragers have showed up and showed out again—this time taking over an entire block in Rice Village. Scores of fans braved uncharacteristically frigid conditions Tuesday in a massive line awaiting the opening of the permanent iteration of Scott's highly anticipated Space Village at 2408 Rice Blvd.

Space began as a Rice Village pop-up during last year's Astroworld; in May, Scott promised fans a permanent store. He delivered this past Sunday—the day after Astroworld 2.0—and lines quickly formed then, too, ultimately shutting down the street. Some fans reporting staying overnight to be first in the door; one man told ABC13 he'd been in line since that Thursday for a whopping 85 hours.

ABC reports inventory—including Scott's Nike collab Cactus Jack Air Jordans—flew off the shelves. The store, which is (supposedly) open Tuesday–Sunday, remained close yesterday; today, fans once again camped out to get their hands on some coveted merch from La Flame.

Well over 100 people, some in winter gear, appeared to be waiting this afternoon in a single line cordoned off by metal barriers on Rice Blvd. from Kelvin to Kirby. A police car parked in the middle of the street outside the store, and another stayed near the head of the line.

Update: Space Village was not open on Wednesday, Nov. 13; per security there, store hours vary and customers should check social media to see when they can shop.
