What to Expect at the 7th Annual Governors Ball Festival Next Weekend
Consistent warm weather is nearly upon us, and with it, so is the seventh helping of Governors Ball. This year, New York City’s homegrown music festival will be doling out yet another jam-packed list of musicians to take over Randall’s Island Park next weekend, June 2 – 4.
Tool is slated as a headliner, and it’ll be their first NYC performance in 11 years. Word on the street is they’re putting on a full-length set with complete tour production. Other big names include Chance the Rapper, Phoenix, Childish Gambino, Lorde, Wu-Tang Clan, Flume, Beach House, Wiz Khalifa, Cage The Elephant, Beach House, The Orwells, Mark Ronson vs. Kevin Parker, The Avalanches, and many others.
Some notable updates for this year’s festival:
Governors Ball 2017 will feature redesigned VIP amenities and locations, a signature lineup of the best food NYC has to offer curated by The Infatuation, an expanded selection of craft beer options, and the lawn games, mini golf, street art, After Dark concert series, and that “only in New York” concrete jungle vibe “Gov Ball” has become known and loved for. Another new addition to the Governors Ball 2017 festival site will be a 21+ oasis open to all 21+ ticket holders, where those in need of a respite from the action, and a refreshing beverage to go with it, can catch some shade while they recharge for the next set on their schedule.
Tickets are going fast; get ’em here. Check out the full lineup below.
