Another year in the books for New York’s largest music festival. Save for what felt like being in an endless mist machine on Friday, the weather stayed fair and unconditional, which is what can be said for the bulk of the festival. As the staff trekked away from the fest the final day, we all agreed that the fest was, you know what?, good and we’d had a fine time.

There was nothing bad about the fifth annual Governors Ball (save for perhaps the unfortunate slip and fall by Slim Jimmy of Rae Sremmurd, who is reportedly doing better). It’s the blessing and the curse of Gov Ball, as it tries to find out where it fits in the early festival season between Coachella and Lollapalooza. Every year, it thrives even more, and for a festival to sell out its $145-a-day ticket price, it’s definitely doing something right.

The acts did everything festival acts should do: There were poppy fan-service acts and more experimental sets to get everybody to flex their ear muscles. The marquee performance by Drake was not bad, but our favorites? We somehow narrowed it down to the 10 below.
