After cancelling last year, the Governor’s Ball is back with plans to celebrate its 10th anniversary in September. In an Instagram post on Tuesday, May 4, the New York City-based music festival announced its upcoming return.
The three-day event is normally held on New York’s Randall’s Island, but the organizers moved it to the Citi Field complex in Queens, which is the home stadium of the Mets baseball team and in recent months has served as a mass vaccination site.
The festival is set to happen September 24-26 at the Citi Field complex in Queens, New York. Megan Thee Stallion, 21 Savage, A$AP Rocky, Burna Boy, Da Baby, Young Thug, Princess Nokia, and more are set to perform. You can read the full lineup poster below.
