Governors Ball 2014 News Roundup
The fourth annual Governors Ball Music Festival took place at Randall’s Island, NY, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of last weekend. For those who remember the event in 2013 (or others who blocked it out because it was so dreadful), the weather was not kind to the thousands of folks in attendance–rain showers nearly destroyed the field and headliners Kings of Leon and Pretty Lights were forced to cancel.
This year, Mother Nature shined down on high-waisted-shorts-wearing hippie chicks, and deep-V-wearing banker bros. The weekend was filled with lovely weather and even lovelier performances from the likes of Jack White, Outkast, Vampire Weekend, Interpol and a ton more. But with over 70 musical acts ranging from Spoon to RJD2, Kurt Vile to Tanlines, who came out on top, and who crumbled beneath the hot Randall’s Island sun?
While we weren’t there to experience it firsthand, we’ve compiled the best Gov Ball coverage the interwebs has to offer to fill you in on all the details of the weekend.
