Who saw this coming? When NYC festival Governors Ball announced their 2013 lineup the headliners were Kanye West, Kings of Leon, and one unannounced artist. You guys guessed things like Phoenix, The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but now the announcement of the third headliner has come and it’s… Guns N’ Roses. Amazing? Totally Lame? What do you think?
The band, featuring Axl Rose and no other original members, last visited NYC in 2012 to play a series of club shows.
Tickets for the festival, which also includes Kendrick Lamar, Beach House, The xx, Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, Nas, Japandroids, and so many more are still available. The fest goes down from June 7 – 9 on Randall’s Island.
