Pride x Bud Light

Another day, another unflattering suntan line—but really, we’re officially more than halfway through with this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival and the post-concert sadness is already starting to settle in. Day 2 has come and gone, but it may have been one of our favorite festival days yet! Between the amazing line-up and ALL of the Pride Month festivities, it was so hard to pick our favorite highlights of the day. Fear not, we’ve narrowed them down for you, so read on to find out our favorite musical and atmospheric moments from Day 2!

Music

There is no way to describe how awesome the artists were for Day 2 of Gov Ball! We kicked off nice and early with our anticipated artist Suzi Wu before booking it over to the main stage for Calpurnia & Clairo—needless to say, we got our steps in for the day before we even hit the halfway mark. We celebrated a wonderful Pride moment with King Princess’ ethereal set, and wound up in Yeehaw City with the iconic Kacey Musgraves herself.

As far as our most anticipated big names of the night, the main stage couldn’t have been planned any better. The 1975 got everyone dancing with their electrifying neon production, backup dancers, and nostalgic pop hits. But of course, it was the elegant and always mesmerizing Florence + The Machine that stole the crowds’ hearts and made Gov Ball Day 2 feel like a dream.

Atmosphere

HAPPY PRIDE! Though today was much more of a music day for us, we HAD to enjoy the Pride Month pop-ups and explore more of the perks of Gov Ball. We stopped by the Gov Ball Bodega—which is adorable and amazingly convenient—that had lotto tickets with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. There were drag shows, pride parades, and mariachi bands galore around every corner all day long, and we even got a chance to stop by the Bud Light Dive Bar stage for a special, intimate performance by hip-hop/pop artist Lauren Sanderson as part of their Pride artist line-up for Day 2 of the festival.
