Governors Ball

As the gates opened for a third day of Gov Ball, the festival brought with it a youthful exuberance that was uniquely its own. The day’s lineup took a chance with many of the acts on the bill, featuring some of the youngest but talented artists in music today as not many performers were all too removed from their debut into fame. This bet would ultimately pay off in a series of electrifying performances and some defining moments that undoubtedly fortified several projects’ meteoric rise to the top of the charts.

As the clock inched closer to noon in New York, the line of fans entering Flushing Meadows stretched as far as the eye could see. The second day of Gov Ball proved to have something for everyone as the staggered set times allowed the fans to see a little bit of everything with a lineup catering to fans of Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, Pop, and everything in between.

The crown Jewel of East Coast music festivals and overall barometer for relevance in popular culture, Governors Ball once again proved an incredible experience as it drew the eyes of all in the New York area. A festival that catered so heavily to the tastes of the newest generation of festivalgoers, the lineup proved to be an all-around masterclass in displaying the tastes of an era as it packed the grounds at its newest home of Flushing Meadows.

A project that built its name on romanticizing the idiosyncratic, East Coast Alternative outfit Little Stranger has made waves as of late with their slice-of-life lyrics and charismatic presence. With an eclectic pool of influences and a mastery of all things quirky, their work is a much-needed reminder to take a beat and embrace the peculiar nature of the world.
