Governors Ball - Randall’s Island, New York City; June 23-24
Moving from Governors Island to Randall’s Island for its second year, and incorporating indie rock, Americana, and pop acts, in addition to dance, hip hop, and electronica, the 2012 Governors Ball has our attention (even if its name no longer makes much sense).
Joining Kid Cudi will be Beck, Fiona Apple, Passion Pit, Modest Mouse, Duck Sauce, Explosions in the Sky, Devendra Banhart, Santigold, and Special Disco Version (LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Pat Mahoney), activities like silent disco, ping pong, bocce ball, and food from spots like Luke's Lobster, Wafels & Dinges, and Hill Country BBQ. Single day tickets start at $95.
