Right on the heels of Coachella's lineup announcement, our eyes are now turned toward the east coast for Governors Ball, which has just released its line up.
With two successful days of music on Randall's Island in New York City behind it, Governors Ball closed out this year's festivities with up-and-coming bands as well as some veteran rockers yesterday.
Unlike the previous two days, where fans just sorta streamed in at their leisure, festival goers made an effort to get to Randall's Island early yesterday to make sure they were there to see everything Governors Ball had to offer.
Even though temperatures were at their smoldering peak on the second day of the Governors Ball Music Festival, that didn't stop the artists from adding their own heat.
As great as the first day of the Governors Ball music fest turned out to be, the second day was even greater.
If you're not able to make it to Governors Ball on Randall's Island in New York City this weekend, that's OK.
Music festivals have been known to be the best place for artists to make big comebacks and to debut new material.
Upon returning to Governors Ball for day two, Diffuser.fm experienced a blissful moment of true festival-ness. After going through the gates and descending the initial hill, we gazed upon a field that had seen better days. A soft layer of mud a foot deep covered acres of concert grounds. People were trudging about, careful not to fall into the soup just as Icona Pop was playing their hit 'I Love It.' Thousands of people were jumping up and down to the beat of the Swedish duo, sending sludge flying about. Was this Woodstock ‘99?
It wasn’t ideal, but it happened anyway. The first day of the newly rebranded Governors Ball, which takes place on Randall’s Island in New York City, came face to face with remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea yesterday (June 7). The many fields where the urban festival is taking place were totally awash as brave concertgoers trudged through the mud, some barefoot, some in Chucks. Not ideal, but yet, it happened anyway.
