Published Jan 15, 2014Following last week's news that the reunited Outkast would be headlining this year's Governors Ball in New York, organizers have now gone ahead and dished out the rest of the lineup details, with big-time confirmations from Jack White, Damon Albarn, Vampire Weekend, the Strokes and more.
A press release for the event has unveiled over a dozen acts now scheduled to play between June 6 to 8 at Randall's Island Park in New York City. Along with the aforementioned acts, this includes Phoenix, Skrillex, Interpol, TV on the Radio, Foster the People, a solo performance from Julian Casablancas, Disclosure, Neko Case, J. Cole, Earl Sweatshirt, Childish Gambino, Chance the Rapper, Spoon, AlunaGeorge, Grimes, Broken Bells, Jenny Lewis, James Blake, Empire of the Sun, the Kills, Deafheaven, Run the Jewels, and Sleigh Bells.
While the Governors Ball has booked global talent, from French popsters Phoenix to Canadian electro experimenter Grimes, organizers put the focus on the local talent unifying the event.
"New York City is the greatest city in the world, and we're blessed to call it our home," promoter and Founders Entertainment personnel Jordan Wolowitz said in a statement. "We're thrilled to showcase some of NYC's greatest homegrown talent at Gov Ball this year. From The Strokes, and Vampire Weekend, to Sleigh Bells, Ratking, and Lucius, we have some of our generation's greatest NYC bands on board to slay the masses. It's gonna be a great weekend."
