Update: Not just Julian Casablancas, but The Strokes will also be playing, according to the official lineup posted on Governors Ball’s website.

Following a damp and squishy Governors Ball in 2013, this year the New York City festival will glom onto OutKast‘s much hyped reunion for a big headliner, as well as indie rock mainstays Vampire Weekend and Jack White.

Idolator reports that the lineup appeared in an ad in the New York Times this morning (Jan. 15), which features more major EDM and rock acts in the second bill like Skrillex, Axwell & Ingrosso (aka two thirds of  Swedish House Mafia) and Disclosure, as well as Phoenix, Interpol, and Foster the People.

Let’s break down the rest of the lineup as we see it.

For more indie rock, you have: TV on the Radio, Julian Casablancas,  Spoon, Broken Bells, Neko Case, Damon Albarn, The Kills, Sleigh Bells, Grimes, Tanlines, Papa, Diarrhea Planet, Jenny Lewis, Fitz and the Tantrums, Washed Out, Kurt Vile.

For more pop: The Head and The Heart, The Naked and Famous, The 1975, Bastille, Janelle Monae,
