GovBall Announces Return with Fall Lineup at Citi Field
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for the return of live music. Finally.
The 10th Anniversary of the Governors Ball Music Festival is coming back for a special fall iteration. It’s set to take place Friday, September 24 through Sunday, September 26 at the Citi Field complex in Queens – a switch from the usual Randall’s Island locale. No word yet on if this is a permanent move, or if the festival will return to its regularly scheduled spot next June.
The move comes with some unexpected perks, too. Accessibility will be significantly easier, for one thing. There are multiple transportation options, including the MTA’s 7 train line, the LIRR, and limited parking. There are also plans on installing high grade astroturf. The usual crafty foods, lawn games, and art installations that are so characteristically GovBall will also be present.
The lineup is stacked, with big names spanning genres and sending expectations sky high. Because let’s be honest, virtual shows just aren’t the same as being in it. Billy Eilish, A$AP Rocky, Post Malone round out this year’s headliners, and there are plenty of can’t miss acts, like Portugal. The Man, Orville Peck, Nation of Language, Dominic Fike, Jamie XX…
Tickets are limited, and go on sale Thursday at noon.
