Governors Ball Music Festival Drops Huge 2013 Lineup

Gov Ball Full Lineup 2013
With the addition of a third day, The Governors Ball Music Festival (June 7-9, 2013) was on the hook to deliver an even more impressive lineup than last year.

Looks like they nailed it.

Kanye West, Kings of Leon, NAS, Pretty Lights, The Avett Brothers, Grizzly Bear, The XX, Feist, Beach House, Kendrick Lamar, Animal Collective, and Erykah Badu top the list, but the bench goes so much deeper delivering a promise of indie goodness mixed with dance acts. The 2013 edition of the Governor’s Ball will be held once again at Randall’s Island in NYC — and we can’t stress how easy it is to get to the festival from the city via the subway.

Still on the horizon — there’s one more headliner in the wings, as well as the daily schedule. Don’t hold your breath for daily tickets, either. If 3-day passes sell out, you can expect there won’t be any day passes.

Tickets: Early bird tickets go on sale January 25 @ Noon EST. It’s going to run you $190 for a 3-Day pass. See more here.
