Thanks to the storm that hit us on Friday (6/7), day 1 of Governors Ball got off to a pretty messy start. It wasn’t so bad at first, and early sets from Polica and Dinosaur Jr. (who had a bunch of fans there in J.Mascis-style grey wigs) were still enjoyable despite the weather, but later in the day, the rain severely picked up and Feist‘s set was shut down after one song. Other artists, like Beach House, were cut off early too, and some, like Pretty Lights and Kings of Leon (who ended up playing Saturday instead), had to cancel completely. Still, before then there was much to enjoy, and the Skyy Vodka Tent made for a great place to take shelter and dry off. Plus huge afternoon dance parties from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Crystal Castles didn’t hurt either.

Stay tuned for our continued coverage of Governors Ball, and follow BrooklynVegan on twitter and instagram for live updates (as much as cell phone service permits at least, it gets pretty rough around mid-day). More pictures of day 1 below…
