    Sunday's headlining artists will consist of rock and alternative acts such as Beck, Modest Mouse, Fiona Apple, Explosions In The Sky, and Cage The Elephant among many others. Interestingly, Fiona Apple and Beck are the only two headliners on Sunday with a recent album release, and both artists have not performed in NYC since 2008.
