Governors Ball 2019 Saturday pics & video (Florence + The Machine, The 1975, more)
Though she's the only country artist performing the entire weekend, Kacey Musgraves proves she fits right in with the rest of the Gov Ball bill. She draws an impressive crowd to the main stage for her late afternoon set, sparking several sing-alongs (especially during her dreamy Golden Hour hit "Butterflies"); and when she smells weed in the air during her Pageant Material cut "High Time," she yells, "Damn, that smells good!" Musgraves brings her Texas roots to the performance, sporting a sparkly floral getup and declaring, "I know that yee haw is having a moment, but I've been yee hawin' all my fucking life." She also makes sure to celebrate her LGBTQ fans and the start of Pride Month, taking off her shoes to run around with a rainbow flag during set closer "High Horse." [Billboard]

Governors Ball is scheduled to wrap up Sunday (6/2), but gates have been delayed due to forecasted thunderstorms. The festival released an updated, abbreviated schedule for the night - stay tuned for any more status updates.
UPDATE: The festival was evacuated around 9:30, just as Beast Coast and Kaytranada were scheduled to start.
