Two months after Gov Ball unveiled its stellar lineup that features Lizzo, Kendrick Lamar, and ODESZA as headliners, the festival gave festivalgoers another gift with the addition of the Bronx's very own Ice Spice.

Ice Spice has risen to fame due to her various viral hits, such as Boy's a liar Pt. 2 featuring fellow Gov Ball 2023 performer PinkPantheress.

Though the Bronx rapper is the latest addition to the 12th edition of the Governors Ball Music Festival, more rising stars and top-tier talent may be added prior to day one of the fest.

Governors Ball 2023 is set to take place from June 9–11 at its newfound home of Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, where music lovers will have a plethora of green space to rest atop of and trees to steal some shade from between sets.

Who else is on the lineup for Governors Ball 2023?

Besides Ice Spice, this year's star-studded lineup also includes today's hottest names such as Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Nas X, Haim, Oliver Tree, Kim Petras, Omar Apollo, Giveon, Suki Waterhouse, 070 Shake, Pusha T, and more.

Additionally, the Governors Ball Gives Back program will look to support the Queens community in which the festival takes place by partnering with local non-profits such as Chhaya, which assists with the housing and economic needs of low-income South Asian and Indo-Caribbean New Yorkers. Another, the Elmhurst Corona Resource Collaborative, works to ensure families have access to food and resources for jobs and financial security, amongst other things.

Tickets for Governors Ball 2023 are currently available for purchase.
