It seems as though Governors Ball has completely ditched left-of-center bookings from the past like Air and The Avalanches in favor of more mainstream pop and hip-hop bookings. There’s some good indie rock buried deep on the undercard. This festival knows who they cater to — trust-fund NYC teenagers. I’ve checked out of ever going back to Governors Ball after a couple bad experiences with crowds there. But if you’re a teen or early twentysomething this lineup probably fits your interests.
