Travis Scott is going to All-Star Weekend! The multiplatinum rapper has teamed up with Smith Entertainment Group, the parent company of the Utah Jazz, to create multiple festive events for NBA All-Star 2023, which will be in Salt Lake City, Utah on Feb. 17-19. Ryan Smith, the owner of the Jazz, made the announcement yesterday (Jan. 31).
“Travis has a one-of-a-kind vision that has made him one of the most popular artists in the world, and we are excited for him to bring his creative energy to Utah,” Smith said on NBA.com. “We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with him on these activations that will help even more fans and the community engage in amazing All-Star weekend celebrations.”
The events Scott produces will be powered by his record label and brand, Cactus Jack, and will give fans gathered in downtown Salt Lake City a one-of-a kind off-the-court experience.
“It’s a dream to be able to collaborate with Smith Entertainment Group and the Utah Jazz to create iconic experiences on a canvas like Salt Lake City — especially during a time like All-Star weekend,” Scott also told the outlet. “I love Utah and have been coming here for years to snowboard. Salt Lake City is definitely going to be the place everyone will want to be.”
