Governors Ball just dropped their 2015 lineup and, wow, it’s a pretty diverse affair! The NYC festival is definitely making their case to be an east coast Coachella of sorts as Drake, Black Keys, Lana Del Rey, Florence & The Machine, Deadmau5, My Morning Jacket and Bjork take over some of the top spots on the lineup.
As I scroll down the lineup, a few other names pop out:
The alt-country of Sturgill Simpson and Strand of Oaks.
The acclaimed reggae sounds of Chronixx.
The avant-electronica of Rustie and Kaytranada alongside bigger hitters like Flying Lotus and SBTRKT.
The War On Drugs and Tame Impala for the critically acclaimed indie-rockers.
Hot Chip, Rudimental and Gorgon City for the live-EDM schtick. Weird Al Yankovic for the lawlz.
Atmosphere, Bishop Nehru, and – yes – Drake for the hip-hop crowd.
I think they did a killer job with this one. Unfortunately, it IS the same weekend as Mountain Jam, so tri-state area homies will have to pick their poison.
