The Governors Ball makes its triumphant return to New York later this year with a slew of artists slated to perform over several days for the event’s tenth anniversary, according to Revolt. Last year’s event was cancelled because of the coronavirus.

Tickets have already gone on sale for the shows that will take place on September 24, 25, and 26. The three-day event, which will take place rain or shine, will be held 11:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day at Citi Field in Queens. There’s a limit of six tickets per person.

Several of the acts scheduled to perform include ASAP Rocky, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Burna Boy, 21 Savage, Young Thug, Leon Bridges, and Freddie Gibbs with The Alchemist.

“Building a recovery for all of us means reconnecting with the iconic events that make New York City the greatest travel destination in the world,” NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a written statement. “As more New Yorkers become vaccinated by the day, we’re proud to support arts and culture and welcome back Governors Ball and their fantastic lineup, including New York City’s own Princess Nokia, A$AP Rocky, and King Princess, among others.”

Here’s the description of the weekend on The Governors Ball website:

“4 Stages and over 70 acts. A food program that features the City’s best eats and highlights its incredible culinary diversity. Visual artists from NYC and around the world. A beverage program that features popular name brands, craft, spirits, cocktail concoctions, and plenty of non alcoholic options. Art installations in the form of mural towers, huge statues, and high flying inflatables. Unannounced pop up performances that surprise and delight. The one of a kind 360° festival layout that prevents sound bleed and eliminates long walks between stages. And so much more.”
