Let’s just call today like it is, Day Two of Amazing Lineup Announcements. Today The Governors Ball Music Festival announced their 2017 lineup and you guys..it’s really good! This is really making me hopeful for continuous great lineup announcements in the future! The festival is held in Randall’s Park from June 2-4 in New York City. What is the biggest OMG HOW COULD I MISS THIS artist of the lineup you ask? Mothereffin PHOENIX!!!! Yep..Phoenix, I said it. I adore Phoenix and those lovely frenchies have been in hiding pretty much since their 2013 album Bankrupt and the tour that followed it’s release (in which I saw them three times). They recently have popped up in a few other festival lineups, Governors Ball being the first in the US. This can only mean new music is on it way, please excuse me while I scream in delight.
Ok, I’m good now, sorry about that. Let’s talk about the rest of the lineup because it’s not too shabby my friends. We’ve got Chance the Rapper, Rufus Du Sol (you guys know how I feel about my Rufus), Lorde, Childish Gambino, Wu Tang Clan, Saint Motel, Mark Ronson vs. Kevin Parker (vs. does this mean there will be some kind of kickass jam-off?), Flume (who is seems to be taking over the festival scene this year), Phantogram, Charli XCX, Bleachers, Mac DeMarco, Air (some more Frenchies, YAY!), and Beach House are just a handful of the bands that will be there. Will you be there? I’m considering it..I mean…Phoenix, yes please!
