Governors Ball 2015 held at Randall's Island in New York City.

UPDATE: Gary Clark Jr. announced he will play Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday (June 7) after his Governors Ball cancelation.

The threat of severe weather led to the cancelation of Governors Ball on Sunday, but many artists who were scheduled to perform at the festival are taking their shows elsewhere around the New York City area.

Day three of Governors Ball (June 5) was set to feature Kanye West, Prophets of Rage, Death Cab for Cutie, Joey Bada$$, Eagles of Death Metal, Courtney Barnett, Two Door Cinema Club, Cold War Kids and more.

As of press time, Prophets of Rage, Courtney Barnett, Two Door Cinema Club, Vic Mensa and Whilk & Misky have announced alternate plans for Sunday night – and it is rumored that Kanye might take the stage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam in New Jersey (Scooter Braun says “stay tuned”).
