Friday's marathon downpour threatened to bury all the Governors Ball headlines in a pit of mud and sweat, but Kanye West elevated the filthy proceedings with his festival-closing set. The newly crowned Yeezus fired up the crowd with a handful of new tracks, but he was far from the only standout of the weekend; preceding his visitation was an array of electrifying sets from Guns N' Roses, Erykah Badu, Animal Collective, Azealia Banks, and Kendrick Lamar, among others. Leave your galoshes at the door.
