Beck, Alberta Cross, Cage the Elephant and Passion Pit (playing their first NYC show in 2 years) are all set to take part in this year's Governors Ball Music Festival.

Expanding to two days in its second year, the festival will take place on June 23rd and 24th and has moved to Randall's Island Park, on the East River, nestled between East Harlem, the South Bronx, and Astoria, Queens.

Building upon the inaugural year line-up that focused on Dance, Hip Hop, and Electronica, Governors Ball 2012 will also incorporate Indie Rock, Americana, and Pop acts.
