The rapper and rocker Jack White topline the list of acts for the eighth edition of the New York City fest, which will mark Eminem’s first headlining show in the Big Apple since 2010, while Diplo and Mark Ronson will debut a new project called Silk City and the Gaslight Anthem will reunite to play their breakout album The ’59 Sound.

Travis Scott, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Halsey, and N.E.R.D. are among the other big names receiving top billing. Khalid, Chvrches, 2 Chainz, Post Malone, Galantis, and Kelela also join the lineup, with many more names to be announced (note the yellow bar censoring one name on the poster below). The three-day festival is set to feature over 65 different artists throughout the weekend, as well as a signature lineup of NYC food, craft beer, and cocktail options, lawn games, mini golf, and more.


The festival will take place June 1-3 at Randall’s Island Park in New York City. Tickets are available now via at special “Announce Day” pricing until 11:59 p.m. ET. Regular pricing begins Jan. 4 at 12 a.m. ET.
