10 Reasons We’re Still Dreaming About Governors Ball

Governors Ball 2015 was a whirlwind of massive crowds, pop divas and dancing in the New York sun. While the crowded sets, long journey and unpredictable weather made the fest tough – we would totally do it over again. Why? Because the lineup proved to be totally KILLER. Relive our fave moments from our weekend on Randall’s Island bumping elbows with new heartthrobs, pushing front row to see Drizzy and bowing down to the queen of the world: Lana Del Rey.

10. Chromeo

More like Charisma, am I right? These dudes know how to put on an interactive, electric show.


9. Björk

A once in a life time spectacular event in which Björk fluttered around the stage as a majestic little butterfly. The quietest and most awe-struck crowd of the entire festival.

Our fave NYC duo killed it and we’re dying for their new Homecoming EP. “Activate Me” is the perfect summer jam and their live show is incredible.

7. Vance Joy

The heartthrob of Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour is now a pro at playing his gorgeous, mellow music for massive crowds.

6. Marina + The Diamonds

We are obsessed with Marina’s “froot” phase and she nailed the purple one-piece ensemble. When one of her tracks didn’t work she just sang it acapella like a true diva.


5. Holychild

Liz and Louie brought their energetic brat pop to Gov Ball and breathed life into the final day. Plus their outfits were over the top and spectacular as usual.

4. Florence + The Machine

Our spiritual leader Florence Welch lead the audience on an inspiring journey as we sang in unison to songs like “Dog Days Are Over” and “Shake It Out”.

3. Charli XCX

Our bae started Gov Ball off on a high and risque note; freeing the nipple and celebrating pussy power.

2. Drake

No one could beat the theatrics of Drake’s Jungle tour set and the inspiration that came from his on-stage storytelling – started from the bottom now we here.

1. Lana Del Rey

Bow down to the Queen of Governors Ball/the entire world. By far the largest and most devoted crowd packed in for Lana’s return to NYC. She put everyone under the Lana spell playing everything from “Brooklyn Baby” to an especially poignant “Summertime Sadness”.
