Day 1 of Governor's Ball. I've never been to a music festival before so I wasn't sure what to expect. We got there around 12:15 and it was still relatively empty. The check in process was slightly annoying, it was a bit too invasive in my opinion. You can't even bring in a zoom lens, which they were nice about this time and I did(admittedly) try to sneak it in but I was told it was a no go tomorrow. To get there we walked the 103rd street footbridge path which was a 20 minute walk which was so beautiful and pleasant, but definitely a bitch to walk back at nighttime.

On to the festival. By time The 1975 were on, there were a couple thousand people. After the set was done I realized there were more than a several thousand. I'm guessing around 20,000 but I don't know for sure. It was packed and during Outkast people were literally skin to skin.

The only acts I have pictures for are the 1975 and Outkast. The 1975 were AMAZING, like so so good. They didn't play Menswear, my favorite song, but I'll let it slide as they rocked the stage regardless. They're the reason I bought the tickets to Governor's Ball. I really enjoyed their set. I also saw Bastille which was a very dry set sadly,and Phoenix which were so energetic and had the entire venue jumping even if you didn't know who they were(I did but you know what I mean). I wanted to see La Roux but because of the timing and the distance of the stages, I had to do some sacrificing and La Roux didn't make the cut. I also split with my friends for The 1975 because they wanted to see Janelle Monae and it was at the same time. It's something thats unavoidable but still a bit of a bummer.

Outkast were the headliners for the festival day. They performed live for great first time in 8 years and they didn't disappoint. The set was full of energy and Andre and Big Boi ran around like they were 20 years old! I'm so glad I saw them live, it made my sore feet and aching calf all worth it. I totally stood for 80% of the day and I was kinda struggling to not complain about aching feet but I enjoyed myself so much and am so excited for Day 2!
