Photos: Governors Ball NYC 2017 (Friday)

Lorde at Governors Ball

The seventh edition of New York’s GOVERNORS BALL took over Randall’s Island Park on Friday (June 2nd) and firmly solidified its place as the ultimate three-day weekender. It’s quite the statement to make as it has recently been victimized by shaky forecasts and ill-natured competition, but the festival upped its panache by sticking to its core values and its ability to DIY waves of early summer goodness. As Day One showed, there was a significant boost in audio and visuals, fireworks, corn dogs, and community art, and in a “No Scrubs” kind of way, Gov Ball over-delivered on its promise of killer performances.

Artists such as Chance The Rapper, Beach House, Majid Jordan, Schoolboy Q, and Charli XCX never missed a beat and neither did Lorde as her 7 p.m. set tapped into Melodrama, Robyn covers, and a cloud nine, soul-stealing debut of “Perfect Places”. In short, Governors Ball aimed high and set the bar for Fridays. Now it’s just a matter of others trying to reset it. Check out our full photo recap below via photographer Matt Jumper.
