After being canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governors Ball is back with a brand new lineup and venue for 2021.
If you were looking forward to spending Sept. 24-26 (which seems to be the official weekend of music festivals coming back) on Randall’s Island, there’s some bad news for you. This year’s festivities (which feature headliners of Billie Eilish, A$AP Rocky, and Post Malone) have been moved to the exterior of Citi Field in Queens.
Dozens of other notable names are on the lineup include Megan Thee Stallion, Phoebe Bridgers, Portugal. The Man, Freddie Gibbs & the Alchemist, Ellie Goulding, Young Thug, and Duck Sauce. It’ll also provide a “new experience” modeled after The Meadows Music and Arts Festival, which apparently allows stages to be closer together to cram a giant festival inside of a baseball stadium. You can see how that’s going to work here.
Tickets go on sale on the Governors Ball website on Thursday, May 6 at noon EST. However, a special presale for three-day and one-day GA and VIP tickets will be available exclusively for Citi cardmembers beginning right now through Thursday, May 6 at 11:59 AM EST.
