Sorting through snaps from the Governor's Ball music festival last weekend was a mixed experience: at once euphoric and slightly nostalgic. The entire three days were nothing but good vibes. Between meeting a ton of super-friendly, interesting people, running into other fun-loving NY friends and bloggers, tanning and lounging on the lawn between shows, dancing away late into the night, and of course, listening to and discovering some amazing musicians, to say I enjoyed myself is a gross understatement.
These pics were snapped on the first day after braving the morning rain showers in order to catch my first act: People Under the Stairs. I've been listening to their music for over a decade, so it was a blast to see them perform! A few of my other favorite acts from day one included Gorgon City (such incredible energy and the vocals were insane), Chromeo (can you say, dance party?!), M
O (damn that girl can sing!), Florence + The Machine (see previous comment) and Ratatat (whose light show alone was a whole separate attraction). And, surprisingly, I managed to keep this maxi dress relatively mud-free, which to me was the icing on a successful first day.
