For all the A-listers and Best New Music winners scheduled to perform, the biggest and most promising words on the Governors Ball flyer are a glowing “No Overlapping Sets,” assuring those taking the ferry to Randall’s Island that they won’t have to decide between Passion Pit and James Murphy, Duck Sauce and Major Lazer, or Chromeo and Santigold. For those unwilling or unable to drop $180 for a two-day pass (and don’t forget to add $50 for ferry or parking), the only choice is whether to come Saturday or today: Dancers will prefer the former, but the latter features indie giants Beck, Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, Explosions in the Sky, and Fiona Apple, who will be celebrating the release of The Idler Wheel . . . her first record in seven years.
