While Bonnaroo is just around the corner, there are still plenty of smaller festivals to look out for. Governors Ball is coming up in New York City, and it offers enough variety to make up for not heading to Manchester. Single-day tickets for the festival are still available, and here are some highlights of what you can see this weekend.

Friday will feature headliners Kings of Leon and Pretty Lights alongside acts including Feist, Beach House, Local Natives, and Dinosaur Jr.

On Saturday, artists such as Japandroids, Divine Fits, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and Icona Pop will be spread across the festival’s four stages. Nas and Guns n Roses are set to headline.

The weekend will be capped off on Sunday with Kanye West and The Avett Brothers at the top of the bill. Haim, Foals, Beirut, and Yeasayer are among the rest of the day’s top-notch selections.

Governors Ball will be held from June 7-9 on Randall’s Island, NYC. Check out the full lineup here, and look out for our recap next week.
