The Governors Ball (Gov Ball NYC)
September 24 – September 26
The Governors Ball, known also as Gov Ball NYC, is an annual music & arts festival held at Randall’s Island Park in New York City in June. Built by New Yorkers, for New Yorkers, the festival is always evolving, always entertaining, and always striving to exceed expectations.
Gov Ball started as a moonlight project between a group of music business friends who launched the festival in 2011 on Governors Island in New York. The festival moved to Randall’s Island Park in 2012, and is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2021 (dates TBC).
Past editions include iconic headline sets from Kanye West, Outkast, Drake, Eminem, and Travis Scott.
Gov Ball draws from the eclectic spirit that makes NYC so special. Great music, good food, delicious drinks, cool art, fun people, NYC.
The line up for the 10th anniversary of Governors Ball (now taking place in September 2021) is coming soon! Expect to see acts from 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 – along with many others who are making their Gov Ball debut.
