Governors Ball 2019 lineup brings old friends and new faces

Now that New Year's hangovers are finally starting to fade and we've had time to revisit the best albums of 2018, it's time to start making some plans for the year ahead. Last week Coachella announced its lineup, with Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala as the headliners. Now the Governors Ball lineup is here.

The 2019 Governors Ball Festival (May 31–June 2 at Randalls Island) brings Tyler the Creator, the Strokes and Florence & the Machine in the top slots. For the Strokes it'll be the band's third appearance at the festival. Florence & the Machine too is a repeat visitor, having played the fest in 2015. Along with those there's a sizaeable amount of recent breakout acts including hip-hop group Brockhampton, Harlem rapper Sheck Wes, Kanye collaborator 070Shake and Bay Area rap crew SOB X RBE.

Anyone who enjoyed last year's critical hits like Kacey Musgraves's Golden Hour, Mitski's Be the Cowboy or 1975's A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships will be pleased to see them on the lineup. In fact a good chunk of the acts playing had outstanding records in 2018, so maybe don't close that best albums tab quite yet.

Tickets are on sale now for the fest (including a small today-only "announcement day" discount).
