Governors Ball 2013 { Wednesday’s Featured Spotify Playlist }

Governors Ball 2013: Spotify Playlist While Sam and I were away at Unique CAMP, New York was bumpin with the Governors Ball Music Festival. This festival is on our bucket list and should be on yours. The 3 day and 4 stage fest happens on Randall’s Island in New York– almost like the East Coast version of Coachella. This year the line-up included some big names like Kanye West, GNR, and Kings of Leon but if you know us, we are more into the bands that aren't featured in US Weekly. So for Sam and I acts like Animal Collective, MS MR, HAIM (did you see them on the cover of ASOS???), Wild Nothing and Holy Ghost! (props to Eileen for sharing) are in our hit list.

Insider tip: Like most festivals it's more than just music, fashion plays a key role. At the Governors Ball the celebrity presence rivals that of Coachella. So be sure you dress the part, especially for the after parties because you are guarantee to see someone notable or be caught on their instagram.
