The first Governors Ball lineup of the new decade is mixing the old with the new.
While the 10th annual lineup features prominent talent like the new-era Miley Cyrus along with Grammy nominated Maren Morris, H.E.R., Vampire Weekend, returning acts RÜFÜS DU SOL and Flume, the three-day festival also has beloved old timers Stevie Nicks and Missy Elliott headlining.
Cyrus and Nicks will take the stage on Gov Ball’s opening day on Friday, June 5 while Morris and Elliott with do the same on Sunday, June 7.
In between those two days will feature a great deal of fellow prominent talent, such as British singer Ellie Goulding, whose vocals appear on a recent Four Tet track titled ‘Baby.’
There’s no maybes about Carly Rae Jepsen’s set at Gov Ball either this year – the Canadian pop star will be doing her set on Saturday, June 6, complimented by other talent like Bleachers and Gryffin who will also be performing on the festival’s mid-day.
Some other big names coming to Governors Island in June are Alessia Clara, Solange, Madeon, and Long Island native Jon Bellion along with many more mainstream artists.
Compared to previous lineups, this year’s Gov Ball has strayed away from incorporating a plethora of electronic talent and has taken a broader approach to its booking.
In 2015, Gov Ball featured: Deadmau5, A-Trak, Flume, Chromeo, Odesza, Gorgon City, Clean Bandit, and Rudimental along with much more headlining talent.
The four-day Delaware-based Firefly Festival also debuted its lineup for late June — giving hard competition to Governors Ball with headliners like Billie Eilish, Halsey, Blink 182 and many more.
Prior to Eilish’s rake-in performance at the Grammys this year, she played Gov Ball back in 2018 on its final day.
This year, single day general admission for Gov Ball starts at $115 while three day GA goes for $315 – VIP prices are naturally loftier.
