It was cruelly cut short by the weather gods, but Governors Ball 2016 still made a splash.
Miguel, Years & Years, Galantis and more took to the stages to deliver unforgettable, if slightly damp, performances.
Up top there you can see our Executive Director A.J. gazing lovingly at our social walls, which were dotted all over the festival. Tweets and Instagram post tagged #GovBallNYC were grabbed and thrown up on the massive screens for the whole crowd to see.
Now, you might feel pretty vexed when one of your skillfully filtered posts only gets six or seven likes – but boy, do they add up. 150,000 posts were hashtagged at Governors Ball this year and they generatedover one million likes. And it didn’t stop there – over five hundred million people saw them. FOMO x 503,092,100.
We worked with Laura at Founders Entertainment to design, create and run the social walls. She said some lovely things about us:
I loved it – thank you for everything! I loved how smoothly it went and I didn’t have to lift a finger”
It was EventsTag’s second time at Gov Ball and we’re already looking forward to next year – and hoping for significantly fewer rainclouds!
