Gen Z is coming up and is not slowing down.

Recently we have seen youth all across the country come to the forefront of a multitude of fields, and we have especially seen that in the music industry. Young people have been rising up the charts and dominating the music scene, and festival organizer are taking notice. Giving them prime real estate on the festival lineup and Governors Ball is no exception, with plenty of Gen Z’ers dominating the lineup.

While many argue and debate over who exactly Gen Z pertains, most settle on the mid-1990s to early 2000s. Probably most you reading this are a part of that generation, and here are some amazing people currently crushing it in hopes that it gets you motivated and/or inspired to do great in whatever field of your choosing.

Billie Eilish

At only 16, Billie is crushing it and is not slowing down After rising to fame after her debut single “Ocean Eyes” went viral, Billie has been releasing hit after hit with many calling her pop’s new “It” girl. Her sound is so unique, and she has a style unlike others in the music world and we can’t wait to see more from her.

During her Gov Ball performance, she actually brought out Khalid (who was playing later that day at the festival), so the duo could perform their smashing hit “lovely.”

 

The Regrettes

An LA-based pubs rock band lead by a 17-year old outspoken frontwoman, Lydia Night, and comprised of Genessa Gariano on guitar, Sage Nicole on bass and drummer Drew Thomsen. The Regrettes are taking the rock scene by storm, and they are only getting started. They deliver a new type of rock that blends the current music scene with the storied past giving them an incredibly different style that’s uniquely theirs.

Let’s Go Generation Z!
