A quick recap about this before this past weekend’s Governors Ball is stale news (which honestly, I’m still reeling over).
As you might have seen on my Instagram, I went as a guest of Dove who did an amazing job of making my very first music festival as fun and pleasant as can be. So spoiled that I don’t know how I would have done it without their pimped out cabana/manicure oasis directly next to the main stage (this is what they call #firstworldproblems). In full festival-spirit, they had Lulu DK flash tattoos, flower crowns, and even Dove-scented bubbles flying around our cabanas.
We started off the day with the Dove team telling us about their mandarin and tiare flower-infused Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash which I already had sitting in my shower at home. I was just eager to see the bands play, and since we were given access to the main stage and VIP entry to the other two stages, it made concert-watching a fun experience. I didn’t realize the tie in with the body wash would come later.
Seventeen — yes, 17 — hours later, we had a day that started with the pouring rain, then sunshine which we basked in while our shoes got muddy in the freshly-wet grass, and ending with all the sweat from dancing for hours to the best music I’ve heard live in a long time. I saw pretty much everyone I hoped to and more, starting with Priory, Rae Sremmurd, to Chromeo, Future, Florence + the Machine, and ending with Odesza, Ratatat, and DRAKE who couldn’t have brought it home any harder with the finale.
When I got home, I was exhausted and just feeling so disgustingly dirty that I bee-lined for the shower. There wasn’t a moment where I could have appreciated the body wash more, so this tie-in was as natural as it gets. After a festival like this, all you want is to be clean and smelling like flowers and rainbows before a good night’s sleep, so well done, Dove.
Thank you the amazing Dove team for an experience I won’t forget! Hope to do it again very soon :).
