Among the artist bill are industry leaders in hip hop, rock, and alternative, but the festival seems to be trending away from the electronic music craze. In the last three years, Governors Ball has hosted artists such as Pretty Lights, Dillon Francis, Skrillex, Disclosure, The Glitch Mob, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, The Bloody Beetroots, deadmau5, and Flume, but the 2016 lineup tastes only a touch of EDM. We can only speculate as to why the shift is focus, but we’d rather hear from you. Leave your thoughts on the Governors Ball lineup announcement in the comments below.
