Governors Ball notably marks the only live date that Missy Elliott has scheduled to date for 2020. The rapper has only made a handful of appearances in recent years, appearing at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans in 2018 and 2019, when last year she also performed at Pharrell’s Something in the Water festival in Virginia. Last year, Missy released a new EP, iconology, which marked its first release since 2005 The recipe book.
Most of the other top paying headliners in Governors Ball have projects in progress or in preparation: Tame Impala will release their new album, The Slow Rush, in February; Cyrus would prepare a new album, She is Miley Cyrus, for later this year; and Vampire Weekend and Flume both abandoned their projects in 2019.
