The new year brought new festival news — particularly BLACKPINK, Bad Bunny, and Frank Ocean’s upcoming appearance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. After months of radio silence from New York’s biggest music festival, fans got a tip regarding the Governors Ball performers.
Concert Leaks tweeted that, “according to Ticketmaster, the Governors Ball lineup will include Aespa, Kendrick Lamar, Diplo, Lizzo, Lil Nas X, Lil Uzi Vert, Haim, Odesza, Pinkpantheress, Omar Apollo, Finneas, and more!”
Thanks to Bandsintown, fans got updates from specific artists making a Gov Ball appearance. The music website confirmed the days the festival was taking place — June 9-11, 2023. However, there was some speculation regarding the validity of this lineup.
“I don’t think this is everyone, though. Last year they had 60 acts and this is only 25. This is probably just one day,” one Reddit user noted, sharing that by expanding it lists 37 artists. Another user wrote, “It says Friday. So, this is Friday leaked.”
On Jan. 14, those suspicions were confirmed with a hypnotizing, intergalactic post from the festival, containing 10 lineup clues. On Jan. 17, the full lineup dropped on the Governors Ball social media accounts and website.
