Last weekend marked the eighth installment of the great Governors Ball Music Festival on Randall’s Island Park in New York, NY. The three-day event has become somewhat of a right of passage to the younger generation of music lovers, bringing out high school and college students to see their favorite acts across various genres. The blatantly enormous talent budget also invited live concert enthusiasts of all kinds to join the fun, offering diverse acts from across the musical spectrum.
The 2018 Governors Ball had something for everyone. Headlining the event were Eminem, Jack White, Travis Scott, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Halsey, N.E.R.D, Khalid, CHVRCHES, The Gaslight Anthem (performing the ’59 sound), Post Malone, Silk City (Diplo + Mark Ronson), and more, are all rounded out the sometimes-sunny-sometimes-cloudy weekend. The full billing included a diverse offering to please anyone’s tastes, including Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Cut Copy, Sylvan Esso, Galantis, The Glitch Mob, Dirty Projectors, Margo Price, 2 Chainz, Third Eye Blind, and so much more.
With dozens of genre-spanning acts on the lineup, there’s always something for everyone at this year’s Governors Ball. Check out the weekend’s photo gallery below, courtesy of photographer Bahram Foroughi.
