While Toronto was busy with Field Trip, festival season was simultaneously visiting New York for the fourth annual Governors Ball music festival. Getting bigger and better every year, the festival came through with a stellar lineup headlined by Outkast, Disclosure, Skrillex, Jack White and The Strokes, making it a must-see for indie rockers and EDM-lovers alike. Sunny skies made for a perfect weekend for the music festival hosted yearly on Manhattan-neighbouring Randall Island, making sunglasses, hats and cut-offs must-wears for the festival’s attendees.

What really caught our eye this year was the high-end accessories game. Whereas festivals are usually grounds for rough and tumble basics like cotton messenger bags and backpacks, this year’s Governors Ball 2014 attendees sported Chanel, Céline and an Olympia Le Tan milk carton minaudiere like it was no big deal. (How else to carry around your water, phone and lipstick?). We’ve rounded up the best looks of the weekend and to be honest, the bags really take the cake. Although how could we ignore the sequin dressed twins, fingernails painted as braces and the all-gold-everything get-up?
