Governors Ball Recap

by Courtney Lyons


I love living in New York, don't get me wrong. However, there is nothing more annoying than being stuck on the east coast during the week of Coachella. Looking on social media, it seems like it's impossible to find a post relating to something other than Coachella. In a world where Kendall Jenner's latest outfit makes the news, its pretty hard to avoid news of Coachella offline as well.

The simple solution to this problem would be to attend Coachella. And while that may work for some, for those of us who can't afford to drop everything and fly to Palm Springs for the weekend there needs to be to be an alternative solution. That alternative solution is a festival of our own: Governors Ball. 

Luckily, I was able to attend Governors ball for the second time this year. I look forward to "Gov ball" as a fun way to listen to a myriad of artists, see old friends and eat amazing food.  

Here is my recap of Governors ball 2016 in photos- 

The day was started off fun. There were a lot more people at Gov ball this year than last year and it could feel a little claustrophobic at times. I ate/drank the world's greatest milkshake (as pictured above) and listened to artists like the Misterwives and Haim. My friends and I were relaxing on a field when all of a sudden we felt rain drops. The next thing we knew, the sky had opened up and there was a torrential downpour. I, luckily, was wearing a bathing suit coverup (which you can read more about here), so I didn't care if I got wet, but some of my friends definitely did. However, once we had covered our things, we decided to not let the rain ruin our night...

Until next time xx
