Governors Island becomes World Town this weekend, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a better bash. M.I.A.‘s headlining slot alone would be worth the ferry ride—and as the concession stand doesn’t serve truffle fries, she’ll actually show up to this—but the supporting bill is sensational: South African hip-hop collective Die Antwoord, British dubstepper Skream, prodigal electro producer Benga, Baltimore rapper Rye Rye, Brooklyn dream-poppers Sleigh Bells, Brooklyn club-kid rhymer Theophilus London, and more. Yep, there’s more. Like you needed more.
