5. Governor’s Ball
What is one thing we learned from last year’s Governor’s Ball? The show must — and will — go on, rain or shine. As a dedicated music fan, there’s something to be said about that kind of dedication. While it was Kanye West, Nas and Kendrick Lamar who headlined in 2013, this year’s lineup promises to be even better. Among the notables who will grace the main stage on NYC’s Randall’s Island are Jack White, Disclosure, and of course, legendary hip-hop duo Outkast. Better yet, it even looks like The Strokes have accepted the festival’s open invite to come play this year. Need we say more?
