Governors Ball 2014 came and went, and it was a great one for the books. How could you not love it this year? The weekend was completely free of rain and you could actually walk without your feet sinking into a dark muddy abyss. It was perfect.

Musically, the lineup was great. From top to bottom, Governors showcased a balanced lineup that featured something for everyone. 2000s rock fans especially, as we saw great performances from The Strokes, Interpol, Spoon, and TV On The Radio. There were also classic sets from legends such as Jack White, Damon Albarn, and of course, Outkast.

It’s about time that New York City has a major music festival that fans can rely on, year in, and year out. They’ve proven that they know how to book their lineups and can be trusted to deliver a great 3-day weekend each year. It’s become a major player in the festival circuit, and looks to only get bigger over time. I can’t wait to see what the future brings for it.

Below, I’ve ranked the top 10 sets I saw at Governors Ball, in addition to a day by day link catch-up style recap where you can check out the individual posts and photos. I’ve also shared my favorite photos that I took from the weekend. Enjoy!
