Meanwhile, the rapper’s ex Kylie Jenner also touched down at the festival to show her support.

‘Kylie flew to Houston with a group of friend. She returns to L.A. this morning,’ a source told People

‘It was important for her to support Travis’ festival. They are still very close and often hang out with Stormi.’

The outlet continued that Scott informed fans later in the day that their 21-month-old daughter Stormi was also in attendance. 

She and Scott announced their split last month, but they remain on good terms as she’s begun a rumored romance with Drake.
