Founders Entertainment is proud to announce the dates for the fourth annual Governors Ball Music Festival. The 2014 edition of New York City's preeminent music event will take place Friday, June 6th through Sunday, June 8th in Randall's Island Park, and showcase over 80 artists performing during the three-day event. Lineup and ticket on-sale details to be announced very soon.
Since its inception in the summer of 2011, Governors Ball has grown from a one-day event with 12 acts, to what Rolling Stone describes as a "major contender" among North America's premier music festivals. Considering New York City's reputation as a notoriously challenging market, the success of Governors Ball, including a sell-out attendance for the 2013 edition, has been incredible and humbling for New York City based festival producers/owners Founders Entertainment.
The coming 2014 festival will build upon the size and scope of last year's programming, and Founders Entertainment are also expanding the festival site: allowing attendees to spread out and enjoy new and improved performance spaces, unique art installations, revamped high-end food and drink areas, and an improved location to savor offerings from some of New York City's best food trucks. And of course as in years past, the festival will include a wide array of Governors Ball's popular summer time activities and lawn games among other attractions.
Founders Entertainment is once again honored to invite attendees to Governors Ball's festival grounds at Randall's Island Park. In addition to being accessible by bus, foot, bike, car, and cab, the festival will again offer ferry service from Mid-Town Manhattan to and from the festival grounds. With each subsequent year of the festival, Founders Entertainment has utilized experience and feedback from previous years to ensure transportation to and from Governors Ball is as smooth and easy as possible.
Randall's Island Park is supported, maintained and programmed by the Randall's Island Park Alliance www.randallsisland.org.
