Governors Ball Announces 2019 Lineup

The lineup for New York City’s beloved Governors Ball music festival, now in it’s ninth year, was released today after much anticipation and the conclusion of an interactive “Guess the Fest” contest in which fans analyzed clues to determine who would be taking the stage at Gov Ball 2019.

Governor's Ball 2019

This year brings one of the most eclectic assortments of artists ever to Manhattan’s Randall’s Island from May 31 to June 2, and fans of all genres will be satisfied to know that there is something for everyone. Headliners include everyone from Florence + the Machine (I personally am stoked for the return of this beloved red-headed beauty and her haunting voice dripping with the ethereal), Tyler, The Creator, The Strokes, Nas, Lil Wayne, and Major Lazer.

If you’re like me and you love every genre, you can now happily skip (or Melbourne Shuffle) from electronic to rap to pop to hardcore rock all in one night. Governors Ball 2019 has major potential to draw in a large crowd this year (though to be honest, that’s never been a problem) due to its diverse lineup, one which rivals the diversity of the much-beloved (and hopefully soon-to-return) Meadows Music & Arts Festival back in 2017 at Citfield. What Governors Ball does right - besides their ability to cultivate cross-genre interest - is their uncanny ability to create community. “Gov Ball,” as it is affectionately called, is a “homegrown festival” and one of those rare New York City events that brings together people from all over the city unlike any other event. That sense of community, of city-hood, of NYC pride centered around music and perhaps needed now more than ever - is why we are looking forward to Governor’s Ball 2019.

Tickets are on sale now, and if you order before midnight TONIGHT (January 7th) you’ll receive “Announce Day” promo pricing. So don’t be late and head on over to the official Governors Ball page to snag your tickets before they sell out. We’ll be there—will you?
