The three-day festival returns to Randall’s Island Park, NYC, on 31 May to 2 June.

Governors Ball has released the details of its full 2019 line-up. The confirmed acts include Blood Orange, Brockhampton, Mitski, SZA, Kacey Musgraves, Vince Staples, The Internet and more. This year’s headliners are The Strokes, Tyler, the Creator, and Florence + the Machine.

Originally founded in 2011, Governors Ball was one of the first festivals to successfully establish itself in New York City. Since then, the multi-genre festival has grown to become one of the USA’s leading metropolitan music events, with over 60 acts confirmed to perform across four stages in 2019.

Since 2012, the music event has taken place on Randall’s Island Park, a green space and recreation ground located on an island in the East River, lying between East Harlem, the South Bronx and Astoria, Queens.

General admission passes are valued at $305 and are available via the festival’s website. Read Crack Magazine’s Issue 72 cover story with Mitski.
