Time Out says
Mon Apr 29 2013
Pulling off a successful blockbuster outdoor music fest around these parts is tough (RIP, All Points West), but it looks like the Gov Ball is going to do it; three-day passes are sold out, as the response to 2013’s lineup has been much more enthusiastic than in years past. It helps that the Randalls Island bonanza has nabbed some of the biggest names in rock (Kings of Leon) and hip-hop (Kanye West)—plus, erm, Guns N’ Roses. But we’re just as excited to catch lower-billed, of-the-moment acts like envelope-pushing indie-rock outfit Deerhunter, L.A. rap phenom Kendrick Lamar and dance-inducing electropopsters Crystal Castles, among others.
