The inaugural Governors Ball was a massive hit. Featuring Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Empire of the Sun, Big Boi, Neon Indian, Das Racist, Miami Horror and Mac Miller to name a few, the one day festival with no overlapping sets was a great summer addition. The Governors Ball is back, moving to the larger Randall’s Island and featuring a fantastic lineup.
