    What an absolutely bizarre final headliner. These guys have been listening to the jukebox of their favorite dive bar while drinking PBR far too often if they think this is something people want.

    First ever US or North American Festival they've done?

    Bridge School was only 30 minutes acoustic and best left forgotten.

    love this line up. don't know why you guys are complaining. isn't this Guns N Roses only North American festival they've done besides their laughable Bridge School thing? Surprised they managed to get them.

    they just sent out an update. miguel canceled, cold war kids added. still no word on single day tickets. they have a pretty funny "volunteer" program up now:
    •There is a $20 non-refundable processing fee. You can expect to be accepted to the volunteer program.

    •Besides the $20 fee, you will also be required to put down a deposit for the price of a 3-Day GA Ticket ($240) with a valid debit or credit card. The card will be charged $260 at sign up and refunded $240 within 5 days of the end of the festival as long as you complete your work requirements and follow all the volunteer rules. If you fail to complete the work requirements or fail to follow the volunteer rules, you will forfeit your deposit (essentially you will just end up paying for a ticket plus the processing fee).

    so governors ball gets paid 20 bucks per person working, and if they dont work enough, they have to pay 260? interesting.

    First off, I just want to say that I am very excited to be attending this festival and I'm sure its going to be a blast.
    Out of curiosity, was Guns N Roses the plan all along or did something happen with another artist?
    Thanks!

    [–]TeamGovBall[S] 12 points 58 minutes ago
    Originally, we had been chatting with Atoms For Peace to be a headliner at Gov Ball this year. It appeared that the June time period worked great for their schedule for touring in the States. A few days before we were scheduled to announce the lineup, we were informed that AFP would not be touring America until the Fall.
    We reached out to handful of acts that piqued our interest. Some had already confirmed their Summer Tour plans, and were thus unavailable for Gov Ball. After we compiled a list of acts that were avail for the festival, we narrowed the list down to iconic acts that weren't 'regulars' on the festival scene, and that many of the fans had never experience in the live setting. GNR's catalog is so deep with hits, and their live show is so strong. Contemporary music festival's like Governors Ball are platforms for fans to see their favorite bands live. But it's also a platform for fans to experience music that they normally wouldn't listen to, or see live. Festivals are also about trying new things. That's part of the beauty of the experience. We're confident they will blow people's minds at Gov Ball.
    This is exactly why I'm not going to this festival. I rather see bands like Dinosaur Jr, Deerhunter, DFA 1979 and etc at smaller venues!

    ps "I would love to head straight to T5 or Roseland" - Yea bro! Two of the finest venues we have in NYC!

    [–]Launchpad_Mcquack88 1 point 48 minutes ago
    Any plans for after parties like Lollapalooza?! I would love to head straight to Terminal 5 or Roseland for a late show!
    permalink

    [–]TeamGovBall[S] 4 points 40 minutes ago
    Yes, we have a ton, and they will be announced in a couple weeks! Stay tuned for epic shows at Brooklyn Bowl, MHOW, Gramercy, Glasslands, and Irving Plaza. And Launchpad - we love you


    [–]andrewtabs 1 point 29 minutes ago
    why didn't you guys get daft punk or MBV

    [–]TeamGovBall[S] 1 point 22 minutes ago
    Because they weren't available.

    This is a standard policy of any festival that has volunteers. It prevents people from signing up as volunteers and then fucking off and just watching sets instead of working.

    With EDC, Electric Zoo, and Camp Bisco, there are dance music alternatives.

    Besides, I expect a pit at Japandroids.

    3 day passes and single days tickets are sold out. only 3 day VIP is left. good for them! last year never felt crowded, but it wasn't sold out. let's hope there isn't too much of a difference.

    Well am I sure ever glad I am not going to this. I would have basically nothing to do all day Friday, then nothing but conflicts all day Saturday and Sunday.

    Also, major lulz at Cut Copy -> Guns N' Roses.

    Awful scheduling. Glad I'm not going to this. Would not surprise me at all if this is completely revamped in a few days similar to how FYF completely changed their scheduling with GVs help.
