Definitely had a blast at Governors Ball this past Saturday. The 3 day music festival in NYC was really well executed. I had tickets for the Saturday show. I wish I had purchased a weekend pass to see the entire festival. Because I drove up, I parked on-site. Parking was $50 and had to be purchased in advance but it wasn’t crazy hectic. Thank God! The entry process was smooth. I got there fairly early so we didn’t stand in line. They required an ID and Covid Vaccine check. There were plenty of food and drink vendors so the lines weren’t ridiculously long. They mailed out wristbands and you could attach your card to the band to pay at the vendors. The event was completely cashless which probably helped move the lines along. The liquor sponsors were Aperol, Bacardi and Patron. They all had really cute installations with seating and games so you could enjoy your cocktail. The event installations were also dope.
Saturday’s headliners we’re J Balvin and A$AP Rocky. I also wanted to see Cordae and Megan the Stallion. There were 4 stages, with different artist performing on each. Most of the artist started on time which I appreciate. Megan’s set was really good but lacked special effects. J Balvin however pulled out all of the stops…smoke, fire, lights. I unfortunately missed A$AP’s performance. It started to get late and I had to drive back to DC.
All in all, I enjoyed every aspect of the festival. Felt so good to be at a festival again.
