Queens, NY – The lineup for the 2022 Governors Ball festival is here, and it packs plenty of Hip Hop firepower.

Cudi is set to headline the Friday night slot, while Cole closes things out on the Sunday. Pop star Halsey, the third and final headliner, is scheduled to perform on the Saturday night.

Launched in 2011, Governors Ball has a long history of Hip Hop headliners. Kanye West, Outkast, Drake, Eminem, Travis Scott, Nas, Tyler, The Creator, A$AP Rocky and Childish Gambino have all headed up the bill over the past decade.
