The 6th year of Governors Ball may have brought us its best lineup yet. Kanye West, the Strokes, the Killers and Beck are among some of the bigger names that will be making their way to Randall’s Island June 3-5 in New York City. Top to bottom, this line-up is impeccably crafted and provides a little bit of something for everyone, especially indie-heads and hip-hop connoisseurs. 2016 Governors Ball tickets are now available.
With all the talk of big new music festivals coming to the NYC area, the Gov Ball organizers clearly stepped up their game and we will gladly reap the result. Kanye headlined the festival in 2013, and the Strokes in 2014, but there are plenty of new names making their mark to check out including Galantis, Louis the Child, Courtney Barnett, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Vic Mensa and more.
