Founders Entertainment is thrilled to announce the dates for the 2013 Governors Ball Music Festival. The 3rd annual installment of the successful New York City festival will take place Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th in beautiful Randall’s Island Park, and feature the best in indie, hip-hop, electronic music, rock, pop, and more. Governors Ball will continue to build upon the incredible success of the past two years, incorporating additional performance areas to the festival grounds, expanding the scope and strength of the line up, and adding to and improving existing attractions and activities including art installations, games, gourmet food trucks, craft beer, wine vendors, and much more. Founders Entertainment is committed to presenting Governors Ball audiences with the very best a music festival has to offer, and looks forward to the 2013 festival.
In its sophomore year Governors Ball made the jump from a one to two day festival, further cementing its place as the preeminent music festival in New York City, and one of the premier music events in the North Eastern United States. With both 2-day General Admission and VIP tickets sold out, energetic crowds poured into the grounds each day to enjoy amazing food, craft beer, art installations, fun activities, and an incredible lineup of musicians including Beck, Passion Pit, Kid Cudi, Fiona Apple, Modest Mouse, Explosions In The Sky, Duck Sauce, Chromeo, Atmosphere, and more.
The amazing vibe of the fans at the festival, and well executed work of the burgeoning event promotion company Founders Entertainment drew positive remarks across the board from media in attendance, including reviews from New York Times, Rolling Stone, Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Spin, Consequence of Sound, and Huffington Post among many others.
“It was difficult to decide what to write about because there is only so much you can say about people having a great time.” – Conseqeuence of Sound
“It’s hard not to gush about the fest because save for some spotty sound during Modest Mouse, the experience was pretty sublime. There were VIP tents at each stage I only glimpsed from the outside, but the truth is the whole fest felt like a VIP experience” – Huffington Post
