Jack White, Outkast, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix and More Highlight Governors Ball (A Gallery)

June 09, 2014

This year's Governors Ball Music Festival went off without a hitch as fans in the New York City area were treated to three days of sunny weather and great music. Among the highlights throughout the three days were Outkast's, who continued their 20th anniversary tour, triumphant return to NYC. Normally, hip hop shows in the New York area tend to take on the feel of a family reunion, however the duo kept the focus on their own material with a blistering set much to the delight of the packed crowd.

Other notables on day one included The Strokes' Julian Casablancas taking the stage with his solo band, The Voidz, for a set of tunes from their forthcoming record due out later this year. You could also find Phoenix, TV on the Radio, La Roux and more throughout the day.

Day two kicked off with far more dance than day one, as Disclosure, Broken Bells, Fitz and the Tantrums and others got the crowd moving early on in the hot sun. Jack White and The Strokes capped off the evening, the latter of which played their first New York City show in many years. The festival capped on Sunday in fitting fashion, as New York City's own Vampire Weekend played the final note at Gov Ball until 2015. Tamara Lee shared some images from the festival.

nice recap of one of the most important festivals in the country. You guys are a “news organization right?”

This isn’t a recap it’s a photo gallery, numb nuts.

Yeah, that’s the point idiot. You would think that a media outlet that covers the “live music scene” could come up with a little more coverage of one of the main music festivals in the country.
