East Coast Shuffle: The Governors Ball Music Festival reveals 2018 lineup


We’re all still busy discussing and dissecting yesterday’s Coachella lineup reveal, but the East Coast has a proper retort early Wednesday (January 3) morning: The Governors Ball Music Festival.

The lineup for the New York City music fest dropped early this morning, and it’s another banger with interesting depth and diverse appeal. There’s some overlap to the desert bash, but Gov Ball has its own particular flavor. Headlining the June 1 to 3 party at Randall’s Island Park are Eminem, Jack White, Travis Scott, and the reunited Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Writes Gov Ball on Facebook: “tickets on sale now! special announce day pricing available today only until 11:59 pm est. govball.com/tickets ????”


Notables elsewhere on the poster include N.E.R.D., CHVRCHES, Halsey, Khalid, The Gaslight Anthem performing The ’59 Sound, Alvvays, BROCKHAMPTON, Third Eye Blind, Japandroids, Billie Eilish, the UK version of Slaves, Middle Kids, and others. There’s also a secret band listed in fairly large font, so that’s exciting.

Drink it in via flyer form.
