Today in a surprise announcement Governors Ball announced a special, Holiday presale that will occur on 12/12/17 at Noon EST. This will be your first chance to snag passes for Governors Ball 2018, and likely the cheapest. General admission passes for Gov Ball 2018 will begin at $245 + fees, which is a solid deal given the prices of other music festivals across the country. It's nice to see that Governors Ball prices in 2018 will be consistent and not increase much (if at all) from the 2017 prices. Also, if you are a Governros Ball fan then the next couple of weeks should be fun! Governors Ball today announced that from 12-1-17 to 12-12-17 they will be doing 12 days of hints about Governros Ball 2018. The first hint can be seen below:
If you are confused and have no idea what it means then that is exactly how I feel. If I had to muster a guess I would say perhaps Arcade Fire, but that seems like too big of a hint to come out of the gates with. The symbol above comes from NYU so there are plenty of artists who are linked back to the school including Lady Gaga, Maggie Rogers and others. If you have any ideas on what this Governors Ball hint could mean feel free to let us know in the comments below. We will update this link throughout the next couple of weeks with the rest of Governors Ball 2018 hints.
No idea to be honest - could be Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah, but that's a forced guess. Governors Ball clue #2 is pretty ambiguous.
Clearly a nod to the Grammy 2018 nominations that recently came out. Khalid and SZA both have 5 nominations, so it could be one or both of them as our best guess.
What makes the most sense is Gaslight Anthem, because in their song "Old White Lincon" there is a lyric "You and your high-top sneakers and your sailor tattoos". They also hail from nearby New Jersey, so they would fit well at Governors Ball. That said the band is on permanent hiatus so perhaps it is for Brian Fallon, the lead singer touring solol
Good God, Radiohead is bringing In Rainbows to Governors Ball! I wish! Personally I feel like Beck makes the most sense with hsi recent album Colors. Of course there are endless options as with most of these Governors Ball clues - it could be Grouplove (album called Colours), Jamie XX, Florence + The Machine (one of her top songs is "Spectrum", etc.
Kanye because of his fantastic album Graduation!? Unlikely - I don't see Governors Ball revealing a headliner in these hints. My best guess would be Third Eye Blind because of one of their most popular albums is also called Graduation.
Probably the only clue that is obviously. #000000 is a hex code for the color black, making this clue 6lack.
My best guess would be 2 Chainz since he has a pink house on the cover of his last album. I know some people are saying Pink, but I don't see that personally.
This one is a toughie. Obviously it could be Snoop Dogg, who loves doing random festivals in recent years. It could also be the band PUP or Dr. Dog.
Lil Yachty is on the record for having a new collaboration coming out on New Year's Day this year, so that's our best guess for Gov Ball clue #10.
Only one more clue left after this! I could be seeing what I want to see but if it's a Grizzly it could obviously be Grizzly Bear. The other theory I like, and think is more likely, is this is a polar bear for Maggie Roger's, who's most popular song by far is called "Alaska".
Radiohead in the clues again! Woohoo! Again I joke, but seriously please let it be true. In reality it could be Boombox Cartel or perhaps Bassnectar, who appears to be this year's Chance playing every music festival. Governors Ball early bird tickets are now on sale - soon we can stop speculating and see what all these clues really meant as the lineup will be out within a month.
