Governors Ball 2013: Who We'll Be Seeing Saturday
  • WEDNESDAY, JUNE 05, 2013

  • Posted by: Matt Howard

Earlier this week, we hit you with our Friday itinerary for this weekend's Governors Ball festivities. Today, we're taking on a much more difficult task in our artist selection off Saturday's schedule. Obviously, we can't be everywhere at once, and the time planners at Gov Ball produced some serious set dilemmas, but we're pretty confident in the game plan we've mapped out below.

Robert Delong
Skyy Vodka Tent (12:45PM)


With so many major foreigners on Glassnote Records' roster - cough...Mumford and Phoenix - it's nice to see a young, 'Merican solo artist join the mix. Robert Delong is a 26-year-old one-man band from a Seattle suburb with an affection for nerd tech. The guy's been known to incorporate some alternative devices to enhance his intoxicating EDM performances: Wii controllers, Logitech joysticks, etc. With one EP and his debut full-length Just Movement under his belt, we're looking forward to a seeing a wide range of material from the new era tech savant.




Wild Nothing
Governors Ball Stage (1:30PM)


Virginia dream-poppers Wild Nothing recently released their latest 7-track EP, Empty Estate, which features "A Dancing Shell" (below), and we're really digging its funky Talking Heads feel. This group will be a perfect hangover cure still lingering from Friday.




Japandroids
Governors Ball Stage (3:00PM)


Japandroids' 2012 release Celebration Rock was the album of last summer, so why not have it usher in the beach and BBQ days of 2013? Their rambunctious rock will perfectly suit the main stage, mid-day Saturday.




Fucked Up
Skyy Vodka Tent (3:45PM)


After 45 minutes of Japandroids' intoxicating party rock anthems, we'll move on to something a little more artful, but no less loud. In 2011, Fucked Up released David Comes to Life, which was perhaps the first 'rock opera' designed by a hardcore group. It's a brilliant four-act play featuring 18 truly astounding songs, all of which will inundate the Skyy Vodka Tent at 3:45.




Alt-J
Honda Stage (4:45PM)


Just when we think our minds will burst from Fucked Up's hardcore, theatrical greatness, we'll be scooting over to the Honda Stage to further boggle our brains with Alt-J's criminally infectious sounds.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros
You're Doing Great Stage (5:45PM)


Every festival deserves a good culty vibed band, and Gov Ball landed the best. Edward Sharpe and his flowery army of Magnetic Zeros take the You're Doing Great Stage at 5:45 PM to perform classics (of course) and surely some new great tunes off their impending, self-titled, third release. Watch the group at the World Cafe Live below.

Kendrick Lamar
Honda Stage (6:45PM)


A serious mood shift from the familial Eddie Sharpe, but an opportunity to see Kendrick Lamar in the flesh should not be passed up. The highly praised rap superstar took the world by the ears with his 2012 sophomore release good kid, m.A.A.d city, and if it wasn't for Kanye West's Sunday performance, we'd consider this to be our most highly anticipated hip-hop act at the Ball.




Animal Collective
You're Doing Great Stage (8:00PM)


We were quite fond of Animal Collective's 2012 record, Centipede Hz, and the band is known for putting on one hell of a psychotropic performance. We're sure as the sun's setting over their home city, they won't disappoint.
