Having moved to New York from a small town in the North West of England, this year was always bound to be a year of ‘firsts’ for me. In June, I finally got to attend my first festival! Now if you know me, you know I actually love the outdoors and camping etc but yet when it comes to festival camping, I’ve always thought of it to be quite a grimy and muddy experience. Governors Ball however was as far removed from my previous perception as is physically possible!
The yearly festival takes place on Randall’s Island every June and this year we were met with sunshine and fancy food stalls and not a pair of wellies in sight! Due to the location, we had to take a ferry over to the Island which was only twenty minutes away. On the day we went, Chance the Rapper was headlining and it was such an amazing experience. Definitely something I would recommend especially if like me you’re not completely ready to commit to sleeping in a field with a bunch of strangers!
