Ryan Adams Deems Deadmau5’s Governors Ball Set a ‘Terminator Nightmare’ As Producer Struggles with Sound Issues
It was rock vs. EDM at Governors Ball Saturday night.
Deadmau5 is doing something completely different for his headlining set at the NYC fest thanks to lighting designer LeRoy Bennett: He’s entering the thunder dome.
Started from the bottom, now the Governors Ball is here with a Canadian rapper, a blues duo, a Mickey Mouse-esque DJ and the gangster Nancy Sinatra leading its fifth year lineup.
They say a picture’s worth a thousand words, but a recent photo of Madonna hanging out with Disclosure backstage at Governors Ball in New York City doesn’t say any of the words you might have originally hoped.
Here’s to Jenny Lewis’ rainbow/beige pant-suit, Neko Case’s skeleton pants, the Kills’ leopard-print backdrop, Ezra Koenig’s camo shorts, and Janelle always giving us shivers when she sings ‘Given ‘Em What They Love.’
This June 6-9 we hope and pray for no rain, as we get a huge bill which includes Interpol, Foster the People, J. Cole, The 1975, Sleigh Bells and Tyler the Creator.
The day after The Avett Brothers’ headlining gig at Governors Ball, the guys talked to Radio.com about working with Rick Rubin on their upcoming album out this fall and what it’s like to headline a festival alongside Kanye. Hint: It’s very loud.
