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. Regardless, thousands of fans attended the weekend’s events and most of them left with an earful of dope music and clothes covered with mud. iHIpHop was on-hand to catch all of the weekend’s festivities including performances by Kanye West, Nas, Freddie Gibbs, Azaealia Banks, Animal Collective, Thievery Corporation and more.
