2013 Governors Ball Lineup: Kanye West, Kings of Leon, The xx And More

    After weeks–weeks!–since the Governors Ball website posted their nauseatingly cryptic announcement flyer (you know, the one with every single artist blocked out), we have the official lineup for this year’s festival. Headlining the event are Kanye West, Kings of Leon, and a mysterious third act TBA (let’s guess; looks like “RadioheadandTheSmithsandRollingStones”). Watch the official announcement video that’s only moderately obnoxious and check out the lineup below.

    The three-day musical bacchanalia will be take place June 7-9, 2013, at Randall’s Island in NYC. Tickets go on sale this Friday, Jan. 25 at 12pm EST. Visit www.govball.com for more information.
