It’s a wonder Governors Ball went on as long as it did last night (June 7). New York’s Randall’s Island was flooded, festival-goers were up to their knees in mud in some areas, and the storm continued to rage overhead.
While West Coast music obsessives are so thirsty for this year’s Coachella line-up that fans are creating fake newspaper headlines, the incredibly eclectic Governor’s Ball Music Festival in Randall’s Island, New York has announced a stellar line-up rife with indie favorites and upstarts alike.
In addition to the year’s must-have albums, we’ve collected 16 more download-worthy new releases, which run the gamut from modern rock favorites like Green Day, Soundgarden and No Doubt to emerging upstarts Japandroids, Tama Impala and Walk The Moon.
