Governors Ball has expanded their festival weekend to include an expansive list of after parties. From smaller acts to the heavy-hitters, there is tons going on around NYC following the festival. Highlights include Deadmau5 and SBTRKT DJ sets at Verboten, Atmosphere & Bishop Nehru with a great hip hop double-header, Conor Oberst at the wonderful Music Hall of Williamsburg, Chronixx at Irving Plaza for a late-night weed party, and FlyLo taking on LPR to wrap it all up.

The boys in Lotus are gettin’ their hip-hop on with their newest release, Monk. The first “three minutes of funkiness” comes via Lotus & Lyrics Born for a roots-inspired rap track. Definitely pretty excited for this release. I love it when artists get outside their comfort zone and do something different.

Well if you’re a hip hop head, this is your holy grail. What a damn awesome line up. It’s so interesting to see Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller up there with the greats, but I understand how they have to promote their festival. This is the definitive hip hop line up with legends from Slick Rick, Ice Cube, Nas, Bone Thugs and Big Daddy Kane to new killers like Kendrick Lamar, Dom Kennedy, ASAP Rocky and 2 Chainz.
