Founders Entertainment unveiled the lineup for its eighth annual Governors Ball, saying Eminem, Jack White, Travis Scott, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Halsey are among the top-flight acts booked for three days of wall-to-wall music in New York City.

Planned for Randall’s Island Park June 1-3, Governors Ball will also host Khalid, Chvrches, The Gaslight Anthem performing The ’59 Sound, Post Malone, Silk City (Diplo + Mark Ronson), Lil Uzi Vert, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Cut Copy, Sylvan Esso, Galantis, The Glitch Mob and many others. 

The fest will mark the first NYC appearance for N.E.R.D. since 2010, the same year Eminem delivered his last headlining performance in The Big Apple.  Founders is promising more than 65 artists performing during the three-day weekend.

There will be plenty of food to fuel the masses.  Governors Ball will serve the best eats and drinks New York has to offer, including craft beer and cocktails.  Additional attractions include lawn games, two 18-hole mini-golf courses, street art and the “After Dark” concert series.  There will also be two new 21+ areas added to the “Best Kept Secret” 21+ areas.

The 2017 Governors Ball injected a record-breaking $62.4 million into the local economy and pushed the festival’s four years cumulative total over $185 million, including 2016’s event that grossed $5,278,874.
