As the temperatures continued to rise so did the electrifying sound of the music that filled Randall’s Island, as music-loving festival goers flocked to the 2014 Governors Ball.

The music pumped as the crowd danced along to their favorite bands. It was an electrifying experience to say the least. I was fortunate enough to see the legendary Outkast, Phoenix, The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Jack White,  Bastille, Fitz and The Tantrums and the British babes of Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls.

I would say the most anticipated performers were New York rockers, The Strokes and Vampire weekend. The crowd was jam-packed with enthusiastic concertgoers who listen on as their idols performed before their very eyes. As you can probably see I love being front row center while watching my favorite bands play. I was fortunate enough to get the best seats in the house for most of the bands while they performed.

Overall, this experience was life changing. I have never been to a festival before and for years I got to watch friends and acquaintances attend these fun-filled festivals around the county while I sat in a classroom and studied. Well as a graduation gift to myself I decided that I wanted to experience a music festival and there was no better place than my hometown of New York to do it. New York knows how to get down and party and there was no shortage of that at Governors ball.  I’m so happy I can say that I got to experience it at least once while I was young. Check out my experience: from the lineup to the fashion…Governors Ball delivered.
