The Governors Ball 2018 lineup has arrived. It isn’t exactly the dream team we were thinking of, but fans of The Gaslight Anthem are no doubt excited. After a nearly three year hiatus, the band are getting back together to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of The ’59 Sound. At some point during the festival, Brian Fallon and gang will take to the stage to perform the album in its entirety. Among the 2018 lineup’s other top billers are Eminem, who is also hitting Coachella; Jack White, who returns to Gov Ball after headlining in 2014; Travis Scott, who dropped his new collab with Quavo, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, in December; and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who just recently started playing live shows again after taking four years off.
News of the acts playing Gov Ball comes on the heels of Coachella’s big lineup announcement yesterday. For 2018, in addition to Eminem, the desert dweller will play host to Beyoncé, The Weeknd, SZA, St. Vincent, The War on Drugs, Oh Sees, Angel Olsen, John Maus, Big Thief, Benjamin Booker, Boogarins and many more.
As far as Gov Ball 2018, acts we’re excited about include Maggie Rogers, Dirty Projectors, N.E.R.D, and Diplo & Mark Ronson’s Silk City. Also hiding in the smaller print are teen pop sensation Billie Eilish, Khalid, Third Eye Blind, Cut Copy and Lil Uzi Vert. For all the acts announced see the poster below.
Governors Ball 2018 goes down June 1-3, 2018 at Randall’s Island Park. Tickets are available now, with special pricing in effect until 11:59pm EST tonight.
