Life Is For The Living: Gov Ball 2022 Day 3 Recap
Marking the end of day three and the festival as a whole, we, the attendees, should pat ourselves on the back for experiencing the complete insanity of 2022’s Governors Ball. Compact in such a short time span, the sense of community, fun, and music truly thrived within these three days. Sparking lasting memories along with short-lived but fun moments with strangers, the most memorable leg of the festival by far has to be its last. Hectic in all the best ways, here is what you need to know about the final send-off to an amazing event.
Starting at, you guessed it, 11:45 am, Gov Ball’s beastly nature showed at around 5 pm with frenzied people scattered all around the Citi Field grounds. The threat of rain loomed during the day, but was largely ignored by the attendees wishing to make the most of their Sunday. Full of all walks of life, a few baby-sized humans made an appearance at the event as well, bringing smiles to their parents when showing off adorable dance moves.
Let me hear you yell if you ever ate Ketchup with your fries!
Laura Les – 100 Gecs
Comparing the antics of festival-goers from the first two days, day three appeared more chaotic yet, contained. This evening warranted the largest crowd so far and inadvertently spread more energy in the air as a result. Though everyone was stoked to see such a large turn-up, the artists who gathered the most people inspired more passion than anarchy, resulting in more hands raised up vs. moshing. Nonetheless, acts such as 100 Gecs, with their small niche audience, still managed to create a circle in the pit when their singles “money machine” and “800db cloud” came time to play. Ending with sweaty bodies gleefully colliding with one another, the crowd at the hyper pop band’s show was thoroughly excited by Spongebob samples, a brief “Smoke On The Water” cover, and references to literally putting ketchup on your french fries.
A staple for chill vibes at the festival, KAYTRANADA brought down the house with his unique electronic set. With space to breathe in the crowd, many people danced their hearts out while listening to the relaxing music coordinated by the Haitian-Canadian DJ. This change in pace was the perfect interlude before going into the massive mobs of Playboy Carti and J Cole. Sending off the festival with a bang, these two artists created a frenzy that the audience truly craved for that night.
