Small Font Big Future gives you a low-down on smaller artists you should definitely take the time to see when you’re stage hopping at the next festival.

Ahhhh, Governors Ball. Gov Ball, for short, if you’ve been on the internet in the last decade. It’s stacked with its fair share of huge headliners, ranging from Phoenix to Chance the Rapper to Tool, but they all started somewhere.

Small Font Big Future is here to help you find your next favorite artist before they’re so big you have to buy festival tickets to see them.



An English indie pop band that is somehow reminiscent of the ’80s pop era with a modern twist. Definitely music that would soundtrack a montage in some independent rom com film where the protagonist finally understands his/her purpose.


An innovative producer with emphatic instrumental drops. Dance music that makes you do just that: dance.

Rolling Stone named her an “Australian hip-hop star in the making delivers impressively diverse debut… featuring unapologetic swagger.”

Governors Ball



A R I Z O N A is a midtempo, experimental indie electronic trio. They’re infectiously upbeat without being obnoxiously so.


VANT is an indie rock band with garage-rock sensibilities and sprinklings of pop accents. If you’ve ever road tripped the Pacific Coast Highway, this is probably what you listened to on repeat.


Psychedelic alt-rock from Arkansas that’ll remind you of an early Beck. Get ready to jam out and wish you knew the words to sing them back.

Governors Ball



Kaiydo’s flow has been described as sluggish, syrupy, and woozy. His hooks are irresistible, pointed, and sharp. The combination results in a contagious performance you’ll want to catch.


A Guyana native raised in Brooklyn, this is an MC with a knack for moody melodies with slight (we’re talking minuscule) reggae influences.
