We already knew that OutKast would headline this summer’s Governors Ball festival in New York; it followed Coachella as the second reunion show that the legendary duo had announced. But the rest of the lineup for Governors Ball, which comes to New York City’s Randall’s Island 6/6-8, is online now; as Idolator points out, it appeared in a New York Times print ad this morning. And it is major. The top-billed acts seem like reason enough to check the show out, as Jack White and Vampire Weekend (UPDATE: and the Strokes) will join OutKast. Further down, the bill includes Phoenix, Interpol, Disclosure, TV On The Radio, Spoon, Julian Casablancas, Damon Albarn, Deafheaven, Neko Case, James Blake, Run The Jewels, Grimes, Kurt Vile, Earl Sweatshirt, Janelle Monáe, Chance The Rapper, Tanlines, Tyler The Creator, Washed Out, AlunaGeorge, Broken Bells, Sleigh Bells, Jenny Lewis, La Roux, Classixx, Diarrhea Planet, the Internet, Damian Marley, Foster The People, Empire Of The Sun, Skrillex, RJD2, the Head And The Heart, and a whole pile of others. You’ll find details about the festival here, and I have to say, this might be the first year that Governors Ball has a better lineup than Coachella.
