There were art installations and a rooftop overlooking the BACARDÍ Stage and the rest of the festival. Of course, specialty rum cocktails were flowing. For 2019, BACARDÍ put a lime twist on the signature Gov Ball Punch, a libation that kept festival revelers cool as they listened to their favorite artists, including Lil Wayne, perform. Didn’t attend the Governor’s Ball? You can still bring BACARDÍ Bay to your home with cocktails featuring BACARDÍ Lime and Coconut, Major Lazer Rum, and Superior Rum.
