Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival NYC might be over, but the festival season has only just begun. Soon, Outside Lands, Electric Zoo and the rest of the gang will be here before you know it. So for now, let's focus on Governor's Ball happening this weekend, June 5 — 7.

As your excitement for headliners like Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys and Lana Del Rey swells, take your enthusiasm to the next level and jam out with our 2015 Governor's Ball playlist below. This year's line up is solid — a nice balance of classic vets and newbies. You might be familiar with Charli XCX thanks to HBO's Girls and Iggy Azalea, but have you heard Sharon Van Etten's latest album, Just Like Blood? Perhaps you've been a deadmau5 fan from the get-go, but are you familiar with ODESZA's second album, In Return? If so, you're missing out.

To jumpstart your Governor's Ball prep process, we've gathered 30 songs from artists you won't want to miss. Some have made it to the radio, others are still in that sweet spot of being well-known and loved, yet not overplayed. Keep your fingers crossed they'll stay there. As for the rest, pump up the volume because it's time to get down (sorry, we couldn't resist).
