It only seems fitting to talk about upcoming music festivals in these frigid, snow-riddled days. Well, the powers that be have just released the 2018 lineup for this year’s Governors Ball on Randall’s Island, and it’s quite the cast of characters – check it out.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Eminem, Travis Scott, and Jack White are all slated to headline this 8th iteration of New York’s premiere music festival. A little farther down the food chain The Gaslight Anthem is ending their two-year-long hiatus to play ‘The ’59 Sound’; N.E.R.D is playing a New York stage for the first time in ten years; and Mark Ronson and Diplo are planning a little somethin-somethin under the guise of ‘Silk City.’

There’s plenty of indie goodness, too (we’re looking at you, Alvvays/Menzingers/Regrettes). Plus, Third Eye Blind is playing… so, you know… something for everyone.

Tickets are on sale now. GovBall is June 1-3. Full lineup below, plus one blocked-out artist to be announced later on.
