DFA1979 Foals

The picture above (via Governors Ball's Twitter) pretty much says it all. Death From Above 1979 have cancelled their appearance at this year's Governors Ball, which is especially unfortunate considering they were one of the ten bands we're excited to see. Apparently they're in the throes of finishing their new album and can't make it.

DFA1979 were also supposed to play Governors Ball afterparty with Fucked Up on Friday, June 7 at Irving Plaza, and that has been cancelled too. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Taking their place at the actual festival is Foals, who just brought their tour to Terminal 5 last Friday (5/3) for a fairly insane, hyper-energetic shows. The crowd was pretty much going bananas the whole time (as was singer Yannis Philippakis who spent as much time in the crowd as onstage) so this seems like a good addition to Governors Ball, even though DFA1979 will be missed.

Regular Governors Ball tickets are totally sold out, but you can still get VIP Passes for Friday or all three days.

When are the set times getting posted? I want to see if they can type the start time for Guns 'n' Roses with a straight face.

"When are the set times getting posted? I want to see if they can type the start time for Guns 'n' Roses with a straight face."

There's just no way a Guns N Roses performance is going to happen with an 11pm curfew. Not. A. Chance.

I care a lot about Guns N' Roses - they're the only reason I'll be getting a full refund for my 3-day pass despite thoroughly enjoying the festival. Love you, Axl.

"DFA 79 are complete fucking poseurs. Good riddance"

that's pretty adorable coming from a guy who spells 'poser' the euro-hipster way.

Wow 7:17 between the shortening of 1979 to just 79 and that spelling of posers/ the use of "poser" in general, SIT THE FUCK DOWN

Posted by Anonymous | May 6, 2013 9:16 PM

7:17, I'm not that guy, but dude actually spelled it the '80s skate way, which is the only legit way to spell "poseur".

Get your facts straight, kid!

Not adding the U is like throwing out metal horns with your thumb out. Jesus..

Have fun, assclowns. It's pretty much an overhyped PITA now.

1:14 is absolutely correct and I like the analogy.

7:17 is an asshole fanboy/poseur.

Sounds like their test drive of new material on their Canadian tour probably didn't go so well and now they're having second thoughts about making the reunion anything more than that.

Obviously they got desperate for the third headliner. Nobody wants to see Guns n Roses anymore.

Posted by Delores | May 11, 2013 1:24 PM
