Beck/Devendra Banhart at Governors Ball - 6/24/12
"But the real agenda of Sunday's Governors Ball was a day of crescendos. Separated from Saturday -- a day of computerized repetitions and volume control and equalizer tweaks -- Sunday was for bands building at their own pace. It might be the grunge surges of Cage the Elephant or the strategic crescendos of Explosions in the Sky, but it was hand-played and timed to human impulse.

[NY Times]Governors Ball wrapped up on Randall's Island this past Sunday (6/24) with sets from Beck, Modest Mouse, Explosions in the Sky, Fiona Apple, Built to Spill, a barely recognizable Devendra Banhart, Cults, and more. Pictures of Day 1 are HERE. Pictures of Fiona Apple's set are HERE and Modest Mouse's set are HERE and the rest of Day 2 is below.
As posted last night, Modest Mouse are playing Governors Ball on Randall's Island during the weekend of June 23-24 (same weekend as Orion), but they are just one of many artists that are now announced, and listed, along with more information, below...
