The night time view at Gov Ball

The Governor’s Ball took place on June 2nd, 3rd and 4th at Randal’s Island in New York. Thousands of people made the trip, either by the Manhattan Ferry or by walking the bridge, to see their favorite artists. While Sunday was not as sunny as the other two days, plenty of people still went to enjoy the music.

The headliners on Friday were Chance the Rapper, Lorde and Flume. Other popular artists who performed include Schoolboy Q, Charli XCX and Tove Lo. On Saturday, headliners included Phoenix, Childish Gambino and Wu-Tang Clan. Lastly on Sunday, Tool, Cage the Elephant, and Wiz Khalifa performed.

Junior Zara Annette said “I went to Gov Ball on Saturday. My friend Rachel and I danced the whole night, it was so fun.”

Along with the artists, there was a variety of food available from something as simple as pizza to complex desserts such as Taiyaki Ice cream Fish. While the food was very expensive and the lines were long, it was all very worth it.

Special ice-cream!

Junior, Fatima Velasquez said, “The pizza was amazing. They gave you such large slices too which made the price fair.”
