Nike Astroworld Granny’s Ranch
It was the biggest, baddest music festival that Houston’s ever seen. Travis Scott’s highly curated Astrowold returned for a second year at NRG Park, bringing with it 50,000 multi-national super fans to Texas for a surrealist experience. Nike, whose collaboration with the venerated rapper has produced some of the most coveted kicks around, wanted to offer attendees and influencers an opportunity to channel the Astroworld Amusement Park of his youth through his alter ego Cactus Jack.
Meet Granny’s Ranch, a totally lit activation pairing scarecrows, tractors, with dozens of oversized sculptures and colorful basketballs designed by Houston’s budding young artists. This was no ordinary ranch, this rustic activation sported a three-tiered cactus basketball hoop where guests could get their game on, or catch airtime while completing a pass for a fun photo op. Instagram was aflutter as sneakerheads snapped selfies in front of the enormous sculpted Cactus Jack Air Force 1 patchworked shoe in advance of its release.
