Erykah Badu Performs at Governors Ball Music Festival

As we descended on Randall’s Island for day one (June 7) of the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City, the skies were gray but the atmosphere was far from dreary. Torrential rains abound as festival-goers got down and dirty. Literally. The ankle-deep (and sometimes knee-deep) rainwater and mud didn’t stop thousands of music fanatics from braving the weather to see some of their favorite bands rock the stages at Governors Ball. With headliners like Kanye West, Kings of Leon, Kendrick Lamar, Azealia Banks and more expected to grace each of the four major stages—it’s easy to understand why a few torrential downpours wouldn’t phase festival attendees. —Christina Brown
