If you can't make it to the upcoming Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City's Randall's Island Park, don't fret; you'll be able to livestream the show on DirectTV as well as Twitter, instead.
This weekend, from June 1 to June 3, fans can tune in to see performances from artists like Eminem, Lil Uzi Vert, Travis Scott, and so much more from the comfort of their homes. Starting this Friday, you can tune in on Twitter at live.twitter.com/GovBallNYC and ATT.com/GovBallNYC from 4:45 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. ET to catch the live performances, as well tuning in to AT&T's Audience Network from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. ET to see all the headliners, behind-the-scenes footage, and everything else in between.
Now in its eighth year, it's been dubbed a "Festival with a New York Heart" by the New York Times and has seen acts like Outkast and Childish Gambino take the stage in previous years. This year's extensive lineup will see Jay Electronica, Halsey, GoldLink, Galantis, Khalid, and N.E.R.D. also hit the stage. Earlier this year, 2 Chainz voiced his displeasure with the placement of his name on the official flyer but it looks like he'll still hit the stage this weekend as well. Pusha-T, who is in the middle of a beef with Drake, was also recently added to the bill to replace BROCKHAMPTON, who canceled the rest of their summer tour dates to "regroup" after removing member Ameer Vann amid sexual assault allegations.
After the success of Coachella's YouTube live streams over the past few years, it only makes sense for more festivals to start following suit for music lovers who can't make the trip.
