Danny Brown, Tame Impala, Stevie Nicks, and Vampire Weekend will also perform.

Founders Entertainment revealed the official lineup for the 2020 Governor’s Ball Festival on Twitter this Thursday afternoon. This year marks the festival’s tenth annual show. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 17 at noon Eastern Standard Time.

The most notable name on the flyer is Missy Elliott. The Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter most recently hit the stage at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. After receiving the Video Vanguard Award, she performed a career-spanning medley of hits.  One of Elliott’s most famous co-stars, Alyson Stoner, joined her on stage for the first time in over a decade. Stoner appeared in Elliott’s “Gossip Folks,” from her 2002 album Under Construction.

Besides the VMAs, Elliott has hit the festival circuit hard in recent years. Last summer, she headlined fellow Virginia native Pharrell’s Something in the Water Festival. In 2017, she headlined the FYF Fest in Los Angeles, alongside Frank Ocean.

This past August, she released a five-track EP, Iconology. She also released videos for “Throw it Back” and “DripDemeanor.”

In addition to Missy, notable names like Solange, Danny Brown, H.E.R., Stevie Nicks, and Summer Walker will hit the stage. The festival will take place June 5-7 at Randall’s Island Park in New York. Limited Early Bird and Advance tickets will be made available on the official site on Friday.

Missy Elliott’s Iconology EP is available on major streaming platforms. Purchase your Governor’s Ball tickets on the official website tomorrow at noon. Three-day general admission tickets start at $285.
