Writer Ilana Kaplan tweeted, "Halsey headlining governors ball. Iconic," while another user simply stated, "Take my money, Governors Ball."

Some even speculated that Kid Cudi's return to the festival scene might mean a tour was in the works. From the sound of the rapper's Twitter feed, it looks like they were right.

After the Governors Ball lineup was announced Tuesday, Cudi sent a tweet stating, "I'm takin' the madness all over the world this year to celebrate [Man on the Moon lll]. If [you've] never been to one of my tours before, u [sic] better not f*** around when these tickets are up for sale!"

Founder's Entertainment, the event's promoters, have also vowed to make a $25,000 donation to the New York City Mayor’s Fund for the victims of the tragic Bronx apartment building fire, according to Variety.

Three-day and single-day tickets to Governors Ball will be available for purchase on the festival’s website starting Thursday at 12 PM ET.
