Governors Ball 2018 Artists To Watch: CHVRCHES
One of the most illustrious festivals of the year is just around the corner, and we’re excited to be attending our first Governors Ball music festival this year! The lineup is packed with some of the biggest names in mainstream music like Travis Scott, Post Malone, and Shawn Mendez to name a few. When the line-up was first announced, we were pretty overwhelmed with how many artists we were dying to see.
So, to help you out, we’ve compiled a list of our most anticipated Artists To Watch this year as we count down daily to festival weekend. Stay tuned each day for a new artist feature!
Governors Ball starts Friday, June 1 from Sunday, June 3 at Randall’s Island Park in New York, NY. Though many VIP passes are sold out, regular day passes are still available for most days here. For more information, visit www.governorsballmusicfestival.com.

About: CHVRCHES had been lying low for a while after releasing Every Open Eye (2016), touring non-stop, and making appearances at several festivals. Now, they’re back with their third studio album,Love Is Dead, released today after announcing it by secretly dropping hints to fans and posting mysterious video clips on their social media. Their music has always been easily danceable–only proven further with the latest release–and their live production is a bright and vibrant dream. It would be impossible to stand still during their set, whether you’re a long-time fan or just seeing them for the first time, making them an applaudable asset to this year’s Governors Ball festival.
