I don’t know about y’all but I’m outside his summer! The best part of summer, besides showing off our summer bodies, is the great weather and events that go on throughout New York City. The Governors Ball Music Festival became the new kid on the block when it made its debut in 2011 as a one-day festival and quickly grew to a three-day, multi-stage event.
Previously hosted at Citi Field and Randall’s Island, it’s relocating to Flushing Meadows Corona Park from Friday, June 9 to Sunday, June 11 giving festival goers plenty of space to spread out on grassy lawns and enjoy the vibes. I’m sure you still want to know, “Why this is worth the money?” The answer is simple: THE LINEUP IS EPIC, great food, and after party event. For the amount of money you would spend to see each of these artists individually you could probably cover someone’s rent in NYC.
