Governors Ball Continues Saturday; Kings of Leon to Play Make-Up Set
After a day of filled with high winds and driving rain thanks to Hurricane Andrea, Governors Ball called off Friday’s closing sets from Kings of Leon and Pretty Lights. But the festival and KOL regrouped on Saturday morning under cloudy but dry skies: the band will play a make-up set at 6:45 p.m. and day-1 tickets will be honored.
The band's Nathan Followill made the announcement on his Twitter Saturday morning.
Randall's Island 6:45 main stage, be there. Looks like I get 2 melt your faces after all. Spread the good word.— nathan followill (@doctorfollowill) June 8, 2013
Fridays 1 day tickets can be used again 2day. See y'all at 6:45 MAIN STAGE. I'll be slightly beer'd by then. Gonna be a sunshine party.— nathan followill (@doctorfollowill) June 8, 2013
The tone was considerably more update than his last Tweet about the fest on Friday night, after high winds and driving rain created conditions too unsafe for KOL and Pretty Lights to perform. Several sets were cut short earlier in the day.
"So bummed that we can't play tonight. Had some awesome sh-- planned but Mother Nature had other plans. So f---ing pissed."
Today’s forecast calls for morning showers followed by partly cloudy weather and 80-degree temperatures.
