For many New Yorkers and music fans, the Governors Ball is one of the most highly-anticipated concert events of the year.
A three-day music festival on Randall’s Island in NYC filled with great bands, food, friends and sunshine.
But this year, something was different about the festival.
Dirty, wet ground that made every step between concert stages more difficult and every concert-goer’s feet covered in brown muck. There was no escaping it.
Thanks to a powerful rain storm on Friday night that forced some bands to postpone their sets, mud became the main act at the Governors Ball 2013.
While some were more prepared than others, everyone was forced to eventually embrace it.
Here's what my shoes looked like when I put them on Saturday morning to attend the Governors Ball music festival in NYC. They made it through Coachella, so I figured they could brave the ball.
This is what concert-goers had to walk through just to enter the festival. A rainstorm the night before made the grounds extra muddy.
When the mud became too hard to walk in between concert stages, I eventually had to take off my shoes and walk barefoot in the muck. Yuck!
