Camila Cabello stuck the landing so emphatically that it’s easy to forget she leapt in the first place. This time last year the 20-year-old Cuban-Mexican singer from Miami was fresh out of Fifth Harmony, her generation’s most popular girl group, assembled by Simon Cowell from an array of teenage strangers on the short-lived American edition … More »
New York’s Governor’s Ball Music Festival will commemorate its eighth edition with a diverse lineup headed by Eminem, Jack White, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Travis Scott. The festival returns to its Randall’s Island stomping grounds June 1–3, characteristically representing a myriad of different musical genres, ranging from rock to reggae. The expansive 2018 lineup also enlists Third Eye Blind, Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, Post Malone, Halsey, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, and more to perform at the three-day affair.
Plunging beyond mere variation, Governor’s Ball will additionally feature special performances from Diplo and Mark Ronson, the duo slated to debut their new joint project, Silk City, at the festival.

Tickets to Governor’s Ball will return to their regular price tiers at midnight on January 4. Those interested in attending Governor’s Ball’s eighth iteration can purchase the specially priced passes here.
