The 2013 Governor’s Ball Music Festival had one of the craziest lineups of any Summer music festival. To call it epic would be an understatement. That is until a torrential downpour hit the tri-state area forcing much anticipated acts like Pretty Lights, Kings of Leon, and Erykah Badu to cancel their outdoor performances.
