Governors Ball 2014: Outkast, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes
Governors Ball announced its lineup Wednesday not with a tweet or a press release, but with a full-page ad in The New York Times. As expected, reunited rap duo Outkast will headline the annual festival on Randall's Island in NYC, being held June 6-8. Joining them atop the bill are rock standard-bearers Jack White and Vampire Weekend.
Organizers added NYC rock veterans The Strokes to the lineup Wednesday morning as apparent co-headliners -- an update to the Times ad, which only featured frontman Julian Casablancas. The singer keeps his solo set as well.
