The Strokes’ Governors Ball gig marks the band’s first U.S. show since July 2016. In addition to the Strokes, who headline the Sunday festivities, Julian Casablancas’ the Voidz are also booked to perform on Friday.

This year’s Governors Ball lineup also boasts an impressive cast of emerging artists, including Brockhampton, Jorja Smith, Playboi Carti, Noname, Bazzi, Denzel Curry, Soccer Mommy and Jessie Reyez.

Tickets are available to purchase at the festival’s site beginning 8 a.m. EST Monday. Organizers note that “at the time of purchase, Gov Ball ticket buyers will have the option to add a limited edition, festival branded phone charger to their order, so attendees can ensure their mobile remains juiced from the first note played at the festival until the rideshare home from an epic Gov Ball After Dark show later that night.”
