Friday, June 10

American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor Kid Cudi will take to the main stage for the first headline act of the festival on Friday, June 10. His headline slot comes 10 years after the first and last time he performed at the festival back in 2012.

Some of Kid Cudi's biggest hits include "Pursuit of Happiness," "The Scotts," "Erase Me" and "Day N' Nite," to name a few. He has gone on to release several solo albums and a joint album with Kanye West under the eponymous name Kids See Ghosts which received critical acclaim.

If you are not familiar with Kid Cudi's Grammy-winning music, you may recognize him from starring as DJ Chello in Adam McKay's Don't Look Up on Netflix and as Richard in HBO's We Are Who We Are.

Others performing include acts such as Migos, Jack Harlow, Louis The Child, and Black Pumas.

Friday, June 10 will also see pop star duo and sisters Aly & AJ take to the stage, who burst onto the scene in 2007 with their hit "Potential Break Up Song."

The sisters released their fourth studio album, A Touch of the Beat Gets You Up on Your Feet Gets You Out and Then Into the Sun, in May 2021, marking their first album in 14 years and no doubt fans will be excited to see them perform it live in the New York sunshine.
