Rest up New York City…Governor’s Ball is just around the corner! Drake, deadmau5, and The Black Keys are headlining – acts that require a front and center spot as they always kick ass. The three-day festival is held June 5 – 7 on Governor’s Island and is truly kicks off the start of festival season. For good reason, too. Here are the five acts we can’t wait to see (with an Untitled lifetime achievement award going to Björk).
5. White Lung
Have you had your punk today? Not only is White Lung punk in its purest form, but front woman Mish Way is an accomplished writer, and all around babe. Rip your fishnets and burn your bras. White Lung is performing Saturday, June 6 at 1:30PM.
4. Clean Bandit
What do classical music, disco pop, and a Grammy have in common? It’s the cocktail that makes Clean Bandit. They play Saturday, June 6 at 1:30PM on the GovBallNYC Stage.
Slow things down with some Sunday soul from the perpetually steamy Mayer Hawthorne. He plays at 3:45PM on June 7 in the Gotham tent.
And now…for some deep house from one of Untitled’s favorites. Kiesza keeps the metaphorical disco ball spinning at Saturday, June 6 at 3:45PM from the Gotham tent.
1. Charli XCX
While we’re huge fans of each, we were a little bummed that all that headline spots went to men. Thankfully, our forthcoming “Girl Power” issue star Charli XCX, will be at the Honda Stage on Friday, June 5 at 3PM.
