"Karaoke! Come on!" Björk yelped out at the end of her Saturday night set at the 2015 Governors Ball Music Festival, as the opening notes of "Hyperballad" revealed the crowd favorite that was about to be played. Many audience members dutifully abided by the Icelandic pop chanteuse's command, warbling clumsily along with the opening verse before the Post classic's memorably emotional chorus arrived. "Hyperballad" is a giant song, and the closing fireworks display was certainly fitting. The problem was that there just weren't many people in the crowd to see those fireworks, or help Björk belt out the hypnotic track.
Björk's performance, positioned on the main stage on Saturday night (June 6) prior to deadmau5's headlining show, wasn't as divisive as it was largely shrugged-off from Governors Ball attendees. Presented with 75 minutes of an indie legend prancing around in front of a full orchestra as the sun set, casual fans lasted an average of 20 minutes before wandering off to get ready for Flume or grab a bite to eat. By the end of Björk's performance, the crowd was noticeably paltry but dedicated, as the gathering of diehards rooted on the performance.
