New York City -- Outkast has already been announced for Coachella and Firefly, but the reunited duo aren't stopping there. They'll headline the fourth annual Governors Ball Music Festival along with Jack White, and local NYC bands Vampire Weekend, and The Strokes.
These headliners will be joined on Randall's Island by fellow NYCers Interpol, TV On The Radio, Julian Casablancas, Sleigh Bells, and Haerts, as well as Skrillex, Axwell & Ingrosso, Foster The People, Disclosure, Neko Case, J. Cole, Spoon, Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley, and more. Scroll down for the complete lineup.
The lineup not only further confirms the much talked about Outkast reunion, but the whispers we've been hearing about a follow-up album to Jack White's solo debut, Blunderbuss.
If old Outkast and new Jack White aren't reason enough to purchase a ticket, consider the collaboration possibilities of the three-day festival. Not only will Julian Casablancas perform twice (once with The Strokes and once alone), but the appearance of both Jack White and The Kills (aka Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince) have us hoping for a few surprise Dead Weather tracks. Rap more your genre? Tyler, The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt on the lineup have us itching for some Odd Future madness.
Gov Ball will take place June 6-8 on an expanded festival site on Randall's Island. The larger space will allow for improves performance spaces, art installations, and a new location to enjoy NYC's beloved food trucks.
3-Day passes will go on sale at 3pm EST today via Eventbrite. Single-day tickets will be made available in the near future.
Full Lineup: OutKast, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, Phoenix, Skrillex, Interpol, Axwell & Ingrosso, Foster the People, TV on the Radio, Julian Casablancas, Disclosure, J.
