Launched by Jordan Wolowitz and Tom Russell (Paradigm, ICM, Superfly), the Governors Ball is now one of the leading music festivals in the country and this year they've raised the stakes by adding even more artists and making it a three-day extravaganza out on Randalls Island - a short journey from Manhattan.
Single day tickets and three-day passes are on sale now, or, you could go for a Super VIP ($2,000) which gives you access to VIP viewing areas and VIP lounges at each stage with exclusive shaded areas and a full bar, as well as a concierge service on-site, access to side of stage viewing for some acts, Front of House viewing areas at each stage, access to the Freeloaders Lounge backstage bar, food tokens, and merchandise. Phew.
If a full festival is too much commitment, the Governors Ball After Dark shows feature top acts in venues across the city, going late into the night.
