20 Of The Most Memorable Band Moments From Gov Ball 2016

Gov Ball so hard

Three-day music festivals are, well, they're a lot. You don't realize how long 36 hours is until you've committed nearly all of them to surrounding yourself with sweaty, drunk, substance-addled strangers in a remote location, all in the name of music. Your stamina begins to wane by the end of Saturday, but you're hundreds of dollars out because of this experience and you're going to rally, dammit! Unfortunately, this year's Gov Ball was cut short a day thanks to some suspicious weather. However, the two days that Gov Ball balled were pretty epic. The lineup this year was out of this world. You could throw a dart at it and land on one of your favorite bands. We caught up with a few both on and off the stage. Here are 20 of the best moments. Until next year!
