PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


We like to think of ourselves as calm, collected, and occasionally blasé when it comes to hearing about parties, concerts and festivals but sometimes announcements come out that remind us that we're full of shit and that we still get very, very excited about any event that's truly awesome. Like Governors Ball 2013. The official lineup announcement came out today and it is a doozy -- like, prepare to start breathing into a paper bag-type of doozy. Without wasting time, here are the highlights:

Kanye West
Kings of Leon
Nas
Pretty Lights
The Avett Brothers
Grizzly Bear
Azealia Banks
The xx
Kendrick Lamar
Feist
Beach House
Animal Collective
Cut Copy
Thievery Corporation
Erykah Badu
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
Miguel
Bloc Party
Beirut
Local Natives
Death From Above 1979
Gary Clark Jr.
Best Coast
Dirty Projectors
Alt-J
Deerhunter
Dillon Francis
Icona Pop
Haim
Fucked Up
Japandroids
Twin Shadow
Polica


Scope a video of Fat Jew and his comrade riding around NYC in a Rolls-Royce, announcing the line-up to pedestrians on the street and what we assume are partiers at Westway. And, if that wasn't already enough, the third headliner is still unnanounced. Also of note is the fact that the festival will be expanding from two days to three days this year (and, if you've never been, check out our coverage of last year's fest HERE).  For more information on the lineup and where and when you can snag tickets, click HERE.

Coachella/Bonnaroo/Lollapalooza: your move, guys.
