Astroworld is the name for the third studio album by American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer Jacques Bermon Webster II. Webster is better known by his stage name Travis Scott, initially stylized as Travi$ Scott.
Astroworld was released on August 3, 2018, through Grand Hustle Records and Cactus Jack Records. The album is distributed by Epic Records. It features guest vocals from numerous artists, including The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, 21 Savage, Quavo, Drake, Takeoff, etc.
Travis Scott’s Astroworld album debuted at the #1 spot on the US Billboard 200. It has since been certified platinum thrice by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The name ‘Astroworld’ can also denote Scott’s third concert tour, titled ‘Astroworld – Wish You Were Here.’ The tour began on November 8, 2018, and concluded on July 16, 2019, having made a total of 57 stops. 56 of these performances were in North America, with only one in Europe.
The font used on the logo of Travis Scott’s Astroworld album is a similar but not identical version of a font based on the Teutonic family of fonts, known as Fredericksburg. Nick Curtis is credited with designing the Fredericksburg font.
The actual Astroworld font (the one appearing on Travis Scott’s album poster) only comes in one regular style and is mostly available for download in True Type file format. However, the Fredericksburg font (which bears the closest resemblance to the original Astroworld font) is available in multiple styles and formats.
Now, Travis Scott’s Astroworld album may have played a huge role in popularizing the Fredericksburg font. However, this fancy and retro typeface has been around much longer.
Before Scott adopted this font as well as the ‘Astroworld’ name for his third studio album, the name was already associated with a roller coaster park based in Houston, Texas. The now-defunct theme park, named ‘Six Flags AstroWorld,’ reportedly operated from 1968 to 1970.
In addition to its near-resemblance with the Fredericksburg font, the font used on the Astroworld logo is also similar to funky-style lettering known as Tomato.
Tomato was created by Canada Type and is inspired by a 1970s film type known as Viola Flare. And just like the Fredericksburg font, the Tomato font is available in multiple formats, styles, and variations.
It’s worth noting that the word “Astroworld” was also used for Travis Scott’s third concert tour. The full title of the tour was “Astroworld – Wish You Were Here Tour.”
On Scott’s album, the word “Astroworld” appears in white written against a thick-textured black background to create a magical contrast. On the poster of the tour, the word “TOUR” appears in yellow and is set in Souvenir, whereas the words “Wish You Were Here” were possibly handwritten.
Where to Download the Astroworld Font
As we’ve just highlighted, there’s no specific font associated with the font used on the original Astroworld logo. Instead, there are only a couple of fonts that bear close resemblance to it.
Most of these near-identical fonts are available for free download. The fonts are also free for use on all manner of personal and commercial projects, including t-shirts printing, book covers, movie posters, video game posters, etc.
Due to the font’s thick texture, it’s also an excellent choice for display work, such as posters and packaging materials.
