Governors Ball Releases Set Times for 2015 Festival
With a little over two weeks before this year's Governors Ball kicks off, the New York City music fest has finally released the day-to-day schedule and set times for all the artists playing in June.
For the most part, the set times don't show too much overlap and will allow you to catch a few songs from each band, especially in the beginning of the day. But the biggest issue that you may encounter is distance. Since Gov Ball has been held at Randall's Island over the past few years, organizers have been able to position stages far enough from each other so you won't hear any sound interference; however, that means a lot of power walking and/or running from act to act.
Take for instance, Priory and the Districts, who will be kicking things off on June 5 at 12:15PM. Priory are playing at the GovBallNYC Stage while the Districts are at the Honda Stage on the other side of the island. We highly suggest you put your running shoes on.
As far as conflicts, there are a few of them. On Friday (June 5), you'll need to choose between Chromeo and Vance Joy and Florence and the Machine and the Decemberists, who respectively share the same set times. However you will be able to catch the beginning of My Morning Jacket then mosey on over for Drake, who will close out Friday night. Saturday (June 6) will make you decide between Bjork and Conor Oberst who both play 6:45PM-8PM. However, you'll be able to catch Ryan Adams with no issue, who plays at 9:15PM at the Honda Stage, unless you were hoping to dance it up with Deadmau5, who is playing at the same time.
Sunday's (June 7) biggest conflict is choosing between the Black Keys and Lana Del Rey. However, one plan is to hop between the main GovBallNYC stage and the Big Apple stage starting with Echosmith at 1:30PM then Sturgill Simpson followed by Royal Blood then Tame Impala, the War on Drugs, High Flying Birds and end with the Black Keys to close out your Gov Ball fest. But that's just a suggestion of course.
