Five Acts You Probably Didn't See at Governor's Ball in New York City But Should Have...

It's already been a week since The Governor's Ball took over New York City's Randall Island, with OutKast, The Strokes, Jack White and many more gracing the festival's stages. But what about the bands who didn't close the three night event out? Our Aussie-based-in-NYC writer Rishe Groner was at the event (you can read her more extensive coverage HERE) and brings us her five "discoveries" of the festival - or: the five acts who you probably shouldn't have missed last weekend...

The Festival Diaries: The Governor's Ball in New York City (Part Three: Day Three, 2014)

Day three dawns and the sun gods have visited us again – time to get alarmed, because now we know New York will be haunted with rain, fog and mugginess for the weeks to come. Only two minutes in, Canadian's Half Moon Run have set the bar for the day, with smooth harmonies and a gracefulness that makes every instrument from drum to kazoo look like an elaborately choreographed move – more dancing than music-making.

On day two, the set choices are a little less challenging, but the weather is rearing its head with some surprising issues. With the sun out in full force, so is the crowd on the Big Apple stage for local electro act Tanlines, who are struggling with sound quality issues due to the heat.

Are we gonna be the oldest people there? Asks my friend Annie. We've just spent the last two hours trying to get our old bums out of the house, organizing a combination of stimulants and alcohol with, you know, sunscreen and earplugs. That's right, #grownupshit. Our cab drivers take forever to sync with one another but the sun is shining, the clouds are so fluffy you want to eat them, and most importantly, my phone is charged within a percentage of its life so we can actually spread the joy to you over the seas.

Photo Gallery: The Governor's Ball Music Festival - New York City (June 2014)

We take you to New York City for the annual Governor's Ball Music Festival. Last year's wet weather was replaced in 2014 with nothing but sunshine, as music fans enjoyed the likes of The Strokes, Jack White, OutKast and many, many more. Enjoy these photos from the event and head to our Governor's Ball Hub for our day-by-day recaps!

The Governor's Ball Music Festival returns to New York City for 2014 with a lucky weather break.

After the 2013 festival is most remembered for the rivers of mud, the 2014 Governor's Ball launched with the perfect weather for New York's premier summer festival.

10 reasons to get up early and to go Governor's Ball before Noon (this means you, Loren).

Kicking off on Friday, this year’s Governor’s Ball lineup is as stacked as a fluoro-tube-top-wearing rave Jersey girl, and that includes the wee little hot pants, because it’s stacked at the bottom as well. It’s not just about the biggies, though Outkast, Vampire Weekend and Skrillex are certainly the drawcards over here (see my picks in the article five of the acts you can't miss). Here’s the top ten reasons I’ll be getting up early to arrive for the midday sets – and dragging my friends accordingly, to whom I have dedicated this very handy post.

5 Acts Not to Miss at The Governor's Ball Music Festival in New York City next weekend!

It’s finally – FINALLY – warming up in New York City after a winter from hell, and suddenly the notion that festival season has begun doesn't seem so bizarre after all. As citydwellers return from their Memorial Day weekends of Mysteryland and EDC fun, the trace remnants of glitter and mud remind us all that there is a world out there, and it is full of fantastic music.

New York Festival The Governor's Ball announces Oukast, The Strokes, Jack White and more for 2014!

The New York City festival held on Randall’s island includes a slew of mouth-watering names for the June event. A freshly reunited Outkast headline the event alongside Jack White, Vampire Weekend and New York City’s very own darlings, The Strokes.
