“Governors Ball once again proved that it’s the East Coast’s only true great summer festival”, wrote Rolling Stone of last year’s incredible fifth anniversary. Now heading into its sixth year, Governors Ball has cemented itself as “the crown jewel of New York City music festivals” (New York Daily News), while earning its place as one of the premiere live music events in North America.
