Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Kendrick Lamar head Governors Ball 2013

Governors Ball 2013 lineup poster

The people behind Governors Ball decided to take things up a notch this year. Going from what is usually a mini festival of sorts, which improved each year, to now a full blown three-day (expanded from two) event with over 50 artists. Right now we know two out of the three headliners: Kanye West and Kings of Leon. The third is currently being kept under wraps (maybe a rare appearance of some kind?). Some of the other big names on the bill include: Kendrick Lamar, Nas, The xx, Pretty Lights, Beach House, Animal Collective, The Lumineers, Erykah Badu and Cut Copy.

Bloc Party, Beirut, Death From Above 1979, Local Natives, Yeasayer, Portugal. The Man, Dirty Projectors, Azealia Banks, Best Coast, Crystal Castles, Twin Shadow, The Vaccines, Miguel, Young the Giant, Japandroids, Dinosaur Jr., ALT-J, and ON AN ON will also be performing. Full lineup on the official 2013 poster above.

Early bird tickets are set to go on sale January 25th for $190. After that, passes will be raised to $205, then to $220. You'll be able to pick them up here. Gov Ball runs June 7-9th and takes place at NYC's Randall's Island.
