NYC's most established mega fest

The Governors Ball Music Festival is a multi-genre music festival in New York City. Heading into its eight year, the festival is responsible for bringing massive multi-day festivals to the city.

Featuring a lineup of some of the most influential acts across hip hop, electronic, rock and beyond, Gov Ball is one of the most respected festivals in America.

Taking place on Randall's Island, the festival is located right in the city, using the famed New York skyline as a background and setting attendees loose to explore the city after the headliner closes the main stages each day.  

Situated in the middle of NYC, Randall's Island Park is an island that provides the open, green space needed for such a mammoth musical celebration.
