5 Artists You Shouldn't Sleep On At Governors Ball This Year
    • WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 03, 2018

    It may be early January and we may be a long way away from shorts, tank tops and packed-out festivals, but the release of the Governors Ball lineup today has us dreaming of endless summers already.

    The lineup is a veritable who's who of hot music right now, with must-see acts left and right. Obviously, the attention grabber is Eminem with the headlining spot, but there's quality from top to bottom. There's also quite a few Baeble alumni listed, including AURORA, CHVRCHES, and Wolf Alice. Safe to say we're feeling proud as a peacock over here at seeing some of these artists included on such a list.

    Still, amidst all the excitement and big names, there are some acts you definitely shouldn't sleep on, and these are our top picks for bands you shouldn't overlook.

    1. Aminé


    Aminé really grabbed our attention this year with the release of his debut full-length album Good for You, and especially with the track "Spice Girl". His flow and lyricism are youthful and energizing, and I'm really excited to see how it comes out live.

    2. Alvvays


    I've waxed poetic many times before about my love for Alvvays, and will continue you to do so here. "Indie" music, if you so choose to call it that, is so diluted these days with bands that all look and sound alike, and then there's Alvvays, breaking the mold with a psychedelic, shoe-gazing flair. I'd almost go as far to say that if you could only see one band at Governors Ball, you should make it them.

    3. Wolf Alice


    We here at Baeble Music love Wolf Alice so much we had to dedicate an entire episode of The Dive to them. Ellie Rowsell is unparalleled as a vocalist, and perfectly complements the rest of the band's cathartic indie-rock style.

    4. AURORA


    AURORA was one of our favorite artists to have in the studio, and if you see her you'll understand why. Part singer-songwriter, part pop-artist extraordinaire, everything performance she puts on is truly a performance. Very few people perform with as much emotional intensity and panache as her, and she's guaranteed to get you just as involved.

    5. A$AP Twelvvy


    Hailing from the Bronx, A$AP Twelvvy should feel right at home at Governors Ball. Rocky and Ferg have normally been the spotlight members of the A$AP Mob, but Twelvvy's got bars of his own. If you don't want to contend with the crowds for Eminem, and want to experience some OG East Coast hip-hop, then Twelvvy is a must see.
