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. The crowd assembled at Randall’s Island can also expect N.E.R.D. to make their return to the New York City performance circuit — the hip hop and rock hybrid band’s Gov Ball booking will be the group’s first performance in the Big Apple since 2010.
Three-day GA and VIP passes to the festival are currently available for purchase at a discounted “announce day” price. Tickets to Governor’s Ball will return to their regular price tiers at midnight on January 4.
