Full GovBall Lineup Announced for Summer 2020
This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Governors Ball Music Festival on Randall’s Island, and Founders Entertainment has tapped some big names to kick off the celebration.
Headliners for this year’s festival are GovBall veterans Tame Impala, alongside New York indie darlings Vampire Weekend. New additions to the top slots include venerable Fleetwood Mac vocalist Stevie Nicks, Missy Elliot, Flume and pop star Miley Cyrus. The rest of the lineup is pretty stacked, too. At first pass, some standouts include Portugal. The Man, Foals, Fontaines D.C., Bleachers, and Pup. And for all of you mashup enthusiasts – worry not – Girl Talk also made the roster.
This year’s iteration also brings some new changes to the scene, including an new 18+ age policy with ID (17 and under are permitted entry with a 21+ adult). This restriction has been met with significant resistance in the social media stratosphere, but one bad prepubescent apple ruins the bunch. Find your own David Wooderson and be done with it.
Additionally, the festival promises more VIP perks and better resources to promote cleanliness on the grounds (i.e. more trash and recycling bins). They’ve also promised to add more water stations this year – because nothing says nightmare quite like passing out from dehydration.
Tickets go on sale today at noon. Full lineup below.
