We already knew that New York’s Governors Ball is set to return on September 24-26. It’s a safe-ish fall date that feels hopeful enough for things to be relatively “normal” by then (if most of New York City is vaccinated and COVID-19 variants are kept under control). And now the festival’s return feels even more real. Governors Ball announced its lineup and a new location. It’s usually held at Randall’s Island but this year it’ll be at Citi Field, the Mets baseball stadium in Queens. The lineup is pretty solid, too.

Billie Eilish, A$AP Rocky, and Post Malone will headline the fest, and there will be plenty of other names that’ll surely make people excited enough to shell out on tickets, like Megan Thee Stallion, Phoebe Bridgers, 100 Gecs, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bartees Strange, J Balvin, 21 Savage, DaBaby, Muna, Eillie Goulding, Orville Peck, Bachelor (Jay Som and Palehound’s joint project), and more.

Tickets go on a special presale for 3-day and 1-day GA and VIP tickets that’s exclusively for Citi Cardmembers today (May 4th) through Thursday, May 6th at 11:59 AM ET. Tickets will be available to purchase for everyone on Thursday, May 6 at 12:00 p.m. ET.
