This year, the organizers of Governors Ball have really stepped up and taken their festival to the next level. What started as a one-day festival in 2011 has turned into full blown three-day extravaganza, featuring Kanye West, Guns N' Roses, and Kings of Leon as the headliners. Aside from big names, the festival is known for bringing together some of the best dance, indie, and hip-hop musicians to give the crowd a steady flow of ear candy. We've rounded up the artists that will get us out to Randall's Island early all weekend, so click through for the best non-headliners of Governors Ball 2013! More»

Even the afternoon parties aren't really designed for your rest or relaxation; they're more like daylight booze-fests to fuel you through 24 more hours of music and madness. So that's why it was so refreshing that NYLON & Hugo Boss designed their Saturday afternoon "Escape House" party to be just as epic as anything else, but still feel like a relaxing escape from Coachella weekend.
