New York City, NY – The third and final day of The Governors Ball Music Festival was canceled today (June 5) due to “severe weather and a high likelihood of lightning in the area.”
Kanye West, Joey Bada$$, Vince Staples and Vic Mensa were among some of the artists scheduled to perform at the festival, which was held at Randall’s Island Park in New York City.
Yeezy was set to headline Day 3 of the annual festival with his own set, and, as expected, fans were quick to express their disappointment and frustration with the news via Twitter. Even Yeezy’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, was pissed.
Check out some fan reactions below:
So where's @kanyewest doing his free show tonight now that Gov Ball is cancelled? Times square?

The Gov ball canceled their final day which was suppose to be headlined by Kanye West, I bet he's heading to #SummerJam to level the stage

To find out @kanyewest performance at Gov's ball was going to be the first show for Life of Pablo is even more upsetting ?
