Ah, Governors Ball, the three-day blowout that unofficially kicks off New York City’s summer music festival season. The bonanza, which gets its name from its original location on Governors Island, returns to Randalls Island Park this year from June 1–3. The fest announced its lineup earlier this month with the curious omission of one of its acts (it turned out to be James Blake), and on Monday released its day-by-day lineup.

Legendary rocker Jack White closes out the first night of the fest, with Blake, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Post Malone also on the bill. Travis Scott, Halsey and Silk City (Diplo and Mark Ronson’s collaboration) are the featured acts on Saturday, which looks to be the least inspiring day on the lineup (unless maybe you’re a fan who wants to see The Gaslight Anthem, Manchester Orchestra or Cut Copy play at an outdoor fest for the umpteenth time). Eminem will close out the fest on Sunday, along with N.E.R.D., Khalid, CHVRCHES and Sylvan Esso. Third Eye Blind will also play on Sunday, urging fans to step back from the ledge after a three-day gauntlet of music and booze. 

Three-day general admission and VIP passes to Governors Ball also went on sale to the public on Monday. Single day tickets will hit the market on Thursday, January 25 for anyone who isn’t interested in attending all three days.
