According to our friends who went this year, New York’s Governor’s Ball festival this weekend was a veritable Woodstock-level mud onslaught. Those who stuck it out, though, were rewarded with amazing sets — including a Sunday-night headlining slot from Kanye West, who embraced the opportunity to play five new songs from the upcoming Yeezus, three of them having never seen the light of day before (the other two, “New Slaves” and “Black Skinhead,” you might recognize from his recent gig on Saturday Night Live). Check out ostensibly the first ever live performances of “Onsite,” the Travi$ Scott-featuring “Send It Up,” and “I Am A God” (which sounds like an absolute banger), thanks to the videography skills of some intrepid fans, but don’t expect any of them to be radio singles: typically, Kanye also took the opportunity for some grandstanding – “At this point, when I listen to radio, that ain’t where I wanna be no more.” Check out the videos and remember, Yeezus is out next Tuesday, June 18.
