2016 Governors Ball Lineup Announced — Here’s Everyone You Want To See

Event organizers announced Friday the lineup for the sixth annual Governors Ball Music Festival, and the summertime concert series will boast no small number of big-time acts. Kanye West will headline the festival, which runs from June 3 to June 5 in New York City's Randall's Island Park, as is tradition. Ticket sales began Friday at noon Eastern.

Among the acts scheduled to perform are the Strokes, California-bred sister act Haim, Beck and the Killers, a group that's rumored to have an LP on deck, which could also mean the band will have new material to share on stage at the festival.
