Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Eminem, Jack White and Travis Scott are set to headline at the 2018 Governors Ball Music Festival, set to take place from 1 June through 3 June on Randall’s Island in New York City.
The eighth instalment of the festival will also feature N.E.R.D. performing their first show in New York City since 2010. Additionally, super-producers Diplo and Mark Ronson will debut their new project, Silk City, while New Jersey punk heroes The Gaslight Anthem will reunite to perform their beloved album, The ’59 Sound, in its entirety.

The full Governors Ball line-up has been announced via the festival’s website. Three-day general admission tickets, as well as VIP passes, are available to purchase at a special “announce day” price. Regular pricing will resume at midnight on 4 January 2018.
Governors Ball marks a major show for the iconic NYC trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who performed their first concert in four years last October to celebrate the 15th anniversary of their influential debut album, Fever to Tell.
The festival also marks the first major solo performance for Jack White since he wrapped touring in support of his 2014 album, Lazaretto. The Detroit rocker has reportedly been working on a new album, though he has yet to announce a release date or title. He recently shared a strange new musical collage and video titled, ‘Servings and Portions From My Boarding House Ranch.’
For Eminem, the 2018 Governors Ball bash marks the rapper’s second major 2018 festival appearance following the announcement that he is set to headline this year’s Coachella event.
