Billie Eilish Will Headline NYC’s Governor’s Ball in September with ASAP Rocky, J Balvin, Post Malone


The pandemic is over. Or it’s going to re-start at the Governor’s Ball festival in late September here in  New York.

Billie Eilish, Post Malone, and ASAP Rocky with J Balvin will host the three days set for CitiField. I wonder how the Mets will feel about returning to their stadium after that? I guess they’ll be so out of it, this won’t matter.

Anyway, the B listers are pretty pedestrian on days 1 and 2, but day 3 brings Ellie Goulding, Burna Boy and Dominic Fike, among others. I will watch the whole thing via drone, thank you very much, or from Yankee Stadium, where we will be readying for the playoffs.

Billie will be two months out from her album release. Her current single, “Your Power,” is struggling after just 4 days in release. But the album will be a big hit, I’m sure.
