Governors Ball is the latest major music festival to throw its 2019 lineup into the ring early Monday morning. The pop-focused music event will once again take place at Randall’s Island in New York City on May 31 - June 2 in 2019 and will feature a headlining roster of The Strokes, Florence + The Machine and Tyler, The Creator when it returns for its ninth year this summer.
The GovBall announcement on Monday follows the arrival of the highly-anticipated Coachella lineup last week, although its 2019 roster of scheduled performers certainly differs in some areas than its west coast competition. Fans who attend Governors Ball this summer will be treated to a healthy mix of hip-hop, electronic, and pop-based rock, with other top-billing artists featured on the 2019 poster including SZA, Lil Wayne (who was supposed to play the exact location last summer for Panorama before his travel accommodations prohibited him from making it to the gig), Major Lazer, Brockhampton, The 1975, Nas, Louis The Child, Kacey Musgraves and Blood Orange.
Notable stand-out artists who are listed in the mid-to-lower levels on the 2019 GovBall poster include The Internet, The Voids (giving Strokes fans a double dosage of Julian Casablancas for the weekend), Lord Huron, Vince Staples, Sunflower Bean, Lily Allen, Bob Moses and Chance The Rapper’s younger brother, Taylor Bennett.
The entire 2019 lineup can be referenced in the official poster seen below.
With their announcement on Monday, Governors Ball becomes one of the premier east coast festivals, along with Deleware's Firefly, to share its scheduled programming with hopeful ticket buyers, with summer now on everyone's minds and the holiday season a thing of the past. Seeing which artists will be performing at GovBall makes it easier to gauge who may and may not make appearances at Boston Calling, Newport Folk Fest and Bonnaroo when their lineups arrive here in the coming weeks as well.
