New York's Governors Ball took over Randall's Island — and the rest of NYC when it rained.

The first two days of New York City's Governors Ball went off explosively — though, thanks to the late-spring rain, occasionally a little wet. Day Three was moved to venues around the city, and artists like Vic Mensa and Prophets of Rage wouldn't let the dampness dampen their mood.
