Commentary: We’ve been covering Governors Ball since its inception in 2011 and every year they blow us away with the sheer magnitude of the line-ups. When you’ve got Weird Al and Bjork mixed in with Drake and Charli XCX  on a bill and it all makes beautiful sense, you know you’re in store for something special.

There are a lot of names that are newer to us this year than ever before, so we’re kinda stoked to check them out. We highly, highly recommend subscribing to the fest’s Spotify playlist to get familiar with any band you aren’t familiar with.

Check out past Pop-Break interviews with current Gov Ball performers: ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Big Gigantic , Moon Taxi, People Under the Stairs, and Royal Blood.
