Muddy, miserable, and forever dirty..... these were the first impressions I was left with after Govenors Ball 2013. But after a long shower and with intense scrubbing and a few glasses of Whiskey. I realized that even with a tropical storm Govenors Ball was still one of the most enjoyable weekends of music I have had in recent memory.
Granted I am one of the unique breeds that has survived multiple summers at Bonnaroo, where standing in mud and sun is to be expected. But even with my extensive festival experience, this years Govball was a marathon for my patience, moral and willingness to be covered and mud for 8 hours. It was also the first and only time I will shoot in a pit barefoot (due to the swamp of quicksand mud that swallowed my shoes with in the first 15 minutes of being there Saturday).
The lumineers, Alt-J, Kings of leon, Kanye and Icona Pop all killed and made the massive crowd forget what their feet looked like
