A$AP Rocky, Megan Thee Stallion, and Billie Eilish Announced As Governors Ball 2021 Headliners

The Governors Ball 2021 will also feature Post Malone, 21 Savage, DaBaby, Burna Boy, Earthgang, Princess Nokia, and Teamarr.

The Governors Ball has officially launched its lineup for this year’s music festival. A few standout names that’ll be hitting the main stage include A$AP Rocky, Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish, Post Malone and J Balvin

In case you’ve been wondering if the massive music event would be coming back after it canceled last year, the festival is actually celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Additional acts in the lineup include 21 Savage, Young Thug, DaBaby, Burna Boy, Alchemist, Freddie Gibbs, Cordae, Aminé and Earthgang. A few others on the expansive poster were a bit surprising but they’re also worth highlighting: Smino, Teamarr, and Umi. 

“Building a recovery for all of us means reconnecting with the iconic events that make New York City the greatest travel destination in the world,” said New York Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement. He also shared: “As more New Yorkers become vaccinated by the day, we’re proud to support arts and culture and welcome back Governors Ball and their fantastic lineup, including New York City’s own Princess Nokia, A$AP Rocky, and King Princess, among others.”

If you’re planning on masking up and heading to Gov Ball, the official website noted the following: “Rest assured that safety is our first priority and we are working closely with all city and state authorities on everything.”

Refunds for Governors Ball 2021 will be issued if the festival is canceled in the coming months. Also, if you purchased a ticket last year, it can be transferred over.

Governors Ball 20201 begins on Friday, September 24, and runs through Sunday, September 26 at Citi Field in Queens, New York. A total of 60 artists and musicians will bless the loyal festivalgoers. 

Tickets go on sale on May 6 on the festival’s official site. Check out the full lineup below.
