Somewhere down the line, we all decided the bands we've gotta see at any music festival are just the headliners. So, when it comes to 2014's Governors Ball, of course Outkast will be phenomenal. We know The Strokes will bring down Randall's Island. Why read another list of those must-see bands that tells you what you already know? Well, you don't know nothin' yet...
When crafting our own roundup, we dug a tad deeper into this year's lineup. No, the five Gov Ball acts ahead may not have their names printed in 96-point font on any sort of official event poster, but they're worth braving shoulder-to-shoulder congestion just as much as those headliners above. Click through to check out the bands you can’t miss at this year's island-set fest.
