The 2021 Governors Ball festival will take place at New York’s Citi Field from Sept. 24-26, and will feature headlining sets from Billie Eilish, A$AP Rocky and Post Malone. The 10th anniversary edition of the festival — which took a break in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic — will follow all mandated state and federal guidelines at the time of the event, according to a release.
More than 60 acts will take the stage over the weekend, including J Balvin, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Ellie Goulding, Leon Bridges, 21 Savage, Young Thug, Portugal. The Man, Burna Boy, Future Islands, Phoebe Bridgers, Jamie XX, Carly Rae Jepsen, Big Thief, Bleachers and many more.
This year, the show is moving to the Citi Field complex in Queens, New York, a site that organizers tout as having more transportation options, as well as a 360-degree layout modeled on The Meadows Music and Arts Festival that cut down travel time between stages while still preventing sound bleed. The event will also carpet the venue with high-grade astroturf for comfort, and allow easy access for quick entry and exit in case of potential weather events.
