Fans packed in to see Skrillex at Governors Ball on Saturday (June 7), with listeners gathered not only in front of the Honda stage where he held court but far beyond into the grounds. The DJ kicked off his set with "Recess" single, "Try It Out," all from in his massive spaceship stage-setup, the MotherShip. The infusion of various genres (southern rap, dancehall, dubstep) during his hour on stage – plus signature stage lasers – kept all concert-goers raging.

“Gov BALL New York was one of the tightest festivals I've ever played. XO,” Skrillex tweeted shortly after.


Skrillex was far from done with New York when he finished entertaining at Governors Ball. He kept the party going by making his way to a Governor's Ball after-party at Manhattan's Webster Hall and played until close to 8am Sunday.
