Despite some early day rains, the first day of New York City's Governors Ball 2016 went off without much of a hitch. Midday sets by Father John Misty, Elle King, Public Access T.V., and Christine and the Queens were heavy on the theatrics, while the nighttime haul celebrated the early '00s in a big way, with hit-filled throwback shows by the likes of Beck, Robyn, Bloc Party, and the night's brightest stars The Strokes. Below, photographers Nicole Fara Silver and Jackie Lee Young share their pics from Friday of Gov Ball.
