Chicago is well represented at The Governors Ball, New York City’s most celebrated music festival. Singer Ravyn Lenae, rappers Noname, Saba, Tobi Lou, Ric Wilson, Taylor Bennet and DJ duo Louis The Child will all represent Chicago on the 2019 lineup. Held May 31st to June 2nd at Randall’s Island off of Manhattan, the multi-genre festival draws in over 150,000 attendees over its span of 3 days.

Noname, Ravyn Lenae and Saba have all respectively hit the major festival circuit throughout 2018, and 2019 Gov Ball is yet another sign of their continued momentum on the national circuit. Ric Wilson and Tobi Lou are newer to the national festival scene but both played Rolling Loud’s LA festival run at the end of 2018. Veterans Louis The Child have become festival must-haves as the duo continue to solidify themselves as one of the most exciting dance music acts out there.

Additional notables include Kacey Musgraves, Jorja Smith, Jessie Reyez, Vince Staples, ZHU, King Princess, Ty Dolla $ign, Sheck Wes and Kaytranada.
