This marks Governors Ball’s sixth year, and its headlining acts are all artists who could be poised for a big comeback in 2016. Fans are still eagerly anticipating West’s elusive Swish, while the Strokes are currently working on their long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Comedown Machine. The Killers haven’t announced any plans for their first album since 2012’s Battle Born, but while promoting his latest solo effort The Desired Effect, frontman Brandon Flowers said the band would come back together when the time was right.
