Of all the three days of Governors Ball, I was most excited about Sunday's line-up.
I started my day by watching The Vaccines. I love them! I was actually debating whether I should see Haim instead (they were playing at the same time) because I'm going to see The Vaccines in October anyway when they play with Phoenix. But then, I just really love The Vaccines and I didn't mind seeing them twice!
I felt so funny rushing to the Honda stage, making my way through the mud, because I really wanted to be in front. I had to be extra careful because I didn't want to slip and fall flat on my face/ I made it to the second row, which was not bad at all.
Here are some of the Vine clips I took during their set:
In the end, the crew threw out guitar picks. They fell on the grass but I was lucky enough to ask a security person to get it for me.
Someone also posted their set list on the stage. The girl beside me got it. I was happy taking a photo of it.
I was supposed to see another artist but I decided to just stay in the same stage since I had such a good spot and was going to see Cold War Kids there anyway. I got to the front row behind the rails!
Here is a selfie I took while waiting:
Finally, Cold War Kids took the stage.
After Cold War Kids, I hopped to the other side of the lawn to meet up my friends and watch Beirut. This is what I wore:
I spent the next block of my time in the recharging station because my phone's battery was almost out. I really need to get one of those portable chargers!
Life is full of tough decisions. One I had to make was to pick between The xx and Bloc Party because they were on at the same time. It was really hard, but I decided to watch Bloc Party - I knew it was going to be more of a party (duh) and I felt like jumping around and going crazy.
While watching, I was worried and sad because they still haven't played my favorite song and I had a feeling they were almost done playing! When they said they were playing their last one, I screamed when I heard the intro to "This Modern Love". It's my favorite Bloc Party song!!!
The whole thing was mind-blowing. I never felt that happy and hyper in a long time! I was so glad I saw them.
I have this really good luck in getting most of what I want. (Sounds bratty but it just happens and I'm very thankful for it.) Even if I didn't see The xx at Governors Ball, the universe worked to give me the chance to see them another time. The xx will be playing at Radio City Music Hall in September and I got tickets to see it!
Anyway, back to Governors Ball. The last artist I planned to see was Kanye West. His set was interesting... It was kind of depressing because most of the songs felt melancholic. Maybe it's just me. The sad/funny part was when he sang "Runaway", there was a part that went something like "If you love somebody tonight, hold on so tight" and then people started hugging/making out. I looked to my right and to my left, then hugged myself!
Oh well! The night ended okay. I mean, I was a bit weirded out by how Kanye West ended his set.
Overall, I can say that my first music festival was fun! I cannot wait to attend more! So far, the next music festival I got tickets for is Coachella in 2014. See you there?
