Not everyone was watching the Olympics this weekend. Outside Lands once again veered away from the de facto festival live stream video platform, YouTube, as Superfly, the festival's promoter, continued partnering with Verizon's Go90 mobile video app and Aol.com (Verizon acquired AOL in 2015).

This past weekend wrapped the 2016 Governors Ball, and although Day 3 of the festival was canceled due to weather predictions of lightning and flooding, Days 1 and 2 packed a punch. For those of us not physically at the festival, we were still able to enjoy daytime sets from Eliot Sumner, London Soul, Holly Miranda, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Kristine and the Queens via the Gov Ball webcast on Live Nation TV’s YouTube channel. In the evening, VICELAND’s Noisy cable channel aired live performances as well (albeit, with idiotic banter by Noisey hosts in between acts).
