Fashion people love a music festival — which might explain why Coachella has become such a hotbed for fashion marketing and the entire industry seems to flock there each year — but this weekend, we’re fortunate enough have one in our own backyard.
The Governors Ball has returned for its fourth year, and from Friday through Sunday, we’ll be making the (relatively short) trek uptown to Randall’s Island to catch sets by headliners like Phoenix, Outkast, The Strokes and Vampire Weekend. That, and of course, to check out the festival fashion.
While New York showgoers tend to stick to a less literal adaptation of music festival dress (read: you’ll see fewer flower crowns and crochet dresses), Governors Ball is still filled with standout street style — both in the crowd and on stage. This year’s bill is no exception, and some of the industry’s most well-loved performers — for their sound and for their style — will be performing, likely while wearing looks that we'll immediately want to copy.
From some "It" Boy rockers to the next big thing in pop, click through to see our picks for the most stylish acts at the 2014 Governors Ball. We’ll see you on Randall’s Island!
