This three day music festival is usually held in early June on Randall’s Island in New York City. It was first held in 2011 on Governors Island, which is where the event found its name. This inaugural party was such a success, outselling all other shows that had previously taken place on Governors Island, it had to be moved in subsequent years to the larger confines of Randall’s Island.
As you would expect the line-ups put on by The Governors Ball have grown over the years. In recent times they have had some of the biggest names in the industry spread over a wide variety of genres, giving a little slice of audio excellence for every taste in the crowd. This focus tends to be on the newer acts and artists however, with the odd old-favourite thrown in for good measure.
Expect a packed out crowd full of Big Apple faces ready to rock on down with the fully involved atmosphere. This is one party where everyone wants to see everything with a big smile on their faces. In addition to the music line up you can find food with the Mile End Deli experience for those who like their sandwiches on the large side and there’s plenty of other attractions with a silent disco, lawn games and face painting.
With no camping available on the site, you’ll need to find a good hotel in the surrounds. The Governors Ball has a special arrangement with Hotels for Hope that can offer all kinds of accommodation for every kind of budget, ranging from simple rooms through to poolside apartments, allowing you to carry on your rave till the early hours and then some.
