There are certain “firsts” that every man [must] experience before leaving this world. Some take longer than others, but the time comes sooner or later. There’s your first time behind the wheel. Your first time shaving. Your first time tying a tie (with your father’s help). And of course, the one you’re already thinking of… The first time you spend three days in a huge mudhole with thousands of strangers listening to amazing music across 4 stages on a little island in the East River! That’s right; this weekend was The Governors Ball NYC 2013 Music Festival and, I must say, it was one of the most exciting weekends of my young life.
Between struggling for survival in the pouring rain on Friday and leaving Randall’s Island for the last time after Kanye’s amazing performance Sunday night, the weekend was filled with great performances, good food, cool people, and positive energy. Why talk about it when you can take a look for yourself? Check out the memories below.
