Marilyn Manson shocked the internet when he was added to the lineup of Travis Scott’s ASTROWORLD Festival. 

The second-annual festival took place Saturday at NRG Park in Houston, Texas.

The lineup included performances Migos, Marilyn Manson, Pharrell, Gucci Mane, Rosalia, Young Thug, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Sheck Wes, Young Dolph + Key Glock, Pop Smoke, Tay Keith, Don Toliver, and the Houston All-Stars.

Manson’s addition had mixed reactions from people, but the rock icon apparently had the crowd moshing during his set. 

Manson performed six songs total during his set, which you can see below. 


“This Is The New Shit”
“The Dope Show”
“Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)”
“Antichrist Superstar”
“The Beautiful People”

Many people seemed to enjoy his performance despite his genre being so different from the rest of the performers. However, there were definitely mixed reactions overall about his set. 

The crowd was seen mosh pitting in the audience and apparently Manson burned a bible on-stage during his set, which has been part of his live performances for years. You can see some videos and reactions from fans below.

Travis Scott also surprised the crowd by bringing Kanye West on-stage for his set. People thought this was funny because Manson also performed and burned a Bible, which Kanye has recently been vocal about the resurgence of his faith.

You can see some clips of Kanye’s performance below.
