Eminem, N*E*R*D, Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, and More to Perform at Governors Ball 2018

The 2018 Governors Ball Music Festival will take place June 1 through June 3.

Governors Ball has unveiled its lineup for 2018 and Eminem is set to headline the three-day festival taking place June 1-3 at Randall’s Island Park in NYC. 

Plans for Eminem to tour off Revival first popped up in mid-December prior to the release of his latest studio album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Thus far he's locked in Gov Ball (his first headlining show in NYC in 2010) and Coachella, with more major festival dates likely lined up for the summer.

In our new Complex cover story with Eminem, the legendary Detroit rapper talked about the significance of his new album and why Donald Trump infuriates him so much. "It's so bizarre watching him play to his base that thinks that he cares about them and it's actually the people that he cares about the f*cking least," he explained. "He's living in an alternate reality." Don't be surprised if Em has a few words for Trump during his performance come June.


N*E*R*D, who dropped their fifth studio album this past December, are also set to take the stage at Gov Ball. This will be their first NYC performance since 2010, and also counts as their first announced show since debuting NO_ONE EVER REALLY DIES at ComplexCon 2017.

Additional performers include Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert, Kelela, 2 Chainz, Post Malone, Jay Electronica, Halsey, GoldLinkGalantis, and Khalid. Diplo and Mark Ronson will also make their debut as Silk City at the eighth annual event.
