In its third year, the Randall’s Island fest has an almost impossibly stacked lineup.

Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Nas Tabbed for Governors Ball Festival

The Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City, set to take place this summer from June 7-9, is getting big. So big, in fact, that the event has expanded to three days this year, up from the two it lasted in its first two years. And when you see the acts that the fest has booked for the festivities this year, you will know exactly why two days weren't nearly enough to hold everything in. 

Via Pitchfork:

[...]The lineup has now been announced. Deep breath...

Kanye West, Animal Collective, Grizzly Bear, the xx, Cut Copy, Dirty Projectors, Beach House, Kendrick Lamar, Death From Above 1979, Feist, Beirut, Crystal Castles, Deerhunter, Fucked Up, Miguel, Dinosaur Jr., Best Coast, Japandroids, Twin Shadow, Azealia Banks, Local Natives, Divine Fits, Freddie Gibbs, Yeasayer, Nas, Bloc Party, Wild Nothing, Holy Ghost!, Icona Pop, Poliça, Alt-J, the Vaccines, MS MR, the Avett Brothers, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Haim, and Kings of Leon are all among the acts performing. And believe it or not, they still have yet to announce their third headliner.

We don't even know the third headliner yet. Look at all those names! Kanye back in New York City. Kings of Leon back on the horse. Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Azealia Banks and Freddie Gibbs. Japandroids, Bloc Party, Young the Giant. Tremendous alternative acts like Alt-J, Icona Pop, Avett Brothers, Beach House, and Grizzly Bear. Up-and-comers like Divine Fits and more.  And these aren't even the tip of the iceberg.

I think come June 7, we're going to need a bigger island.
