Governors Ball Announces 2023 Lineup: Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, & Odesza Headline

Governors Ball Music Festival 2023 is slated to take place this year from June 9 to 11 in Queens, New York. After teasing possible performers with a social media video that contained image-based clues, the festival has officially announced this year's lineup today (January 17).

In addition to headliners Kendrick Lamar, Lizzo, and electronic group Odesza, the list of performers includes Lil Nas X, Haim, Rina Sawayama, Pusha T, Snail Mail, Lil Uzi Vert, Diplo, Giveon, Lil Baby, PinkPantheress, Black Midi, Girl in Red, Tems, Finneas, Kenny Beats, Kim Petras, Omar Apollo, Joey Bada$$, Amber Mark, and Syd, among others.

The beloved NYC festival has a new location this year: Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The first Governors Ball Music Festival took place in 2011 on Governors Island. The next year, the event was held on Randalls Island, where it remained for years. The 2020 edition was supposed to take place at Randall’s Island Park, but was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest two festivals have been held in the parking lot at Citi Field in Queens.

In a statement about the move to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Governors Ball co-founder Tom Russell said: "Words can’t express how excited we are to bring Gov Ball to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, one of the most special and storied parks in all of New York City. Since moving to Queens in 2021 we’ve been overwhelmed by the welcome the community has shown us, and we look forward to continue being a part of and giving back to that community for years to come. We are honored to call such an iconic venue our new home, and we thank Mayor [Eric] Adams and his administration and Queensborough President Donovan Richards for their trust and support."

A Citibank presale is available now. You can find more information here. Fan early access tickets will be available January 19 at 10am ET while a general on-sale will follow.
