Governor's Ball

The schedule has been revealed for the Governor's Ball Music Festival taking place at Governor's Island on June 18. The festival has artists performing on two stages (Big Apple Stage and Gotham Stage), but with no overlapping sets. The two stages means no long changeovers either though. You can run and back and forth and catch all of everyone. Das Racist have been added since the initial lineup announcement, though they go on pretty early. Tickets are still available. Check out the schedule, and a video interview with Girl Talk, below.

This is gonna be dope. Finally a mini fest gets it right. $95 and no overlapping sets, I don't have to decide who to see. 11 bands and 1 DJ set means you're paying a little over 8 bucks per band. Which is usually how much a Girl Talk ticket at T5 is right? 8 bucks or is more like $9.50?

Here is the PL interview Gov Ball posted earlier today. His set is gonna be f*cking epic!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKwmyOuL-7Q&feature=player_embedded

@4:25 so what, you shouldn't pay as much if you don't get to see a full band? I realize PL & GT are "DJ's," although PL does play with a drummer. So by your logic, if there were more, "bands," you'd want the ticket price to go up. It should cost more if there are more people to look at on the stage, right? Fucking tool. Let me know how that Nickleback show is.

Such fun, savvy booking for this fest! Even Lolla and ACL ended up following suit and booking the same acts. Look at Perry's Stage at Lolla this year - same thing. Trendsetters at Gov Ball this year

To all you folks who think this is expensive, we are in NYC for Christ's sake. EVERYTHING is expensive. This really isn't bad in comparison to most things you folks might waste your money on in this city. Plus this lineup is gettin' my d*ck wet...
