Gov Ball 2019: What Went Down Before Mother Nature Took The Headline Slot
Another Governors Ball is in the books and, except for Mother Nature taking over Sunday's headlining slot, the New York City summer-starting festival once again delivered a weekend of great music on Randall's Island.
The Recording Academy went On The Road and on-the-ground at Gov Ball 2019 with host Alina Vission, to bring you exclusive backstage interviews with an array of artists just before or after they hit the stage.
You can look forward for more exclusive conversations coming soon to GRAMMY.com, including with R&B future star Amber Mark and rising dance outfit Louis The Child, who we also caught up with at the fest.
Friday featured a trio of big hip-hop headliners—Tyler, The Creator, Lil' Wayne and BROCKHAMPTON—who relentlessly electrified the N.Y.C. crowd. Saturday's upbeat vibe was provided by top-billed acts Florence + The Machine, Major Lazer, The 1975 and 61st GRAMMY Awards Album Of The Year Winner Kacey Musgraves, plus the first ever Gov Ball Pride Parade.
Sunday's show was cut short due to inclement weather, but not before N.Y.C. hometown hero Nas and Chicago DJ duo Louis The Child got the audience going underneath the New York rain. Graciously, Governors Ball is offering refunds to Sunday ticket holders.
Stay tuned as we go On The Road all summer, bringing you exclusive coverage from the hottest music festivals everywhere.
