Previewing the 8th Annual GovBall on Randall’s Island
With the unofficial start of summer here, festival season is upon us.
Now in its eighth iteration, New York City’s homegrown music festival will be dishing out another jam-packed list of musicians, foodie trucks and festivities to take over Randall’s Island Park next weekend, June 1 – 3.
Eminem is one of the big headliners this year, along with GovBall vetetan Jack White. Also of note, The Gaslight Anthem will be playing their beloved ’59 Sound album in its entirety. Other household names include the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, James Blake, Manchester Orchestra, N.E.R.D, Sylvan Esso, and many others. And while those names might be enough of a sell, bands in the midsection of the lineup poster are packing quite a punch. Be sure to catch Alvvays, The Regrettes, The Menzingers, Japandroids, and, lest we forget, 90s icon Third Eye Blind, where every thirty something will most likely be chanting “God of Wine! God of Wine!”
Tickets are going fast; get ’em here. Full lineup below:
