Summer 2023 in New York City is about to have it’s annual celebratory 3-day kickoff; the Governors Ball is heading to Flushing Meadows Corona Park! After spending the past few years down the street at Citi Field, the festival has moved to the historic Queens park, one fans will enjoy as it is filled with trees (can easily hide from the summer sun!), and relax on the grassy fields.
From June 9-11, music fans can enjoy artists such as Lizzo, Oliver Tree, Kim Petras, Lil Nas X, Kendrick Lamar and more! Whether you’re in the mood to dance to pop and hip hop hits, or mosh to artists like Kennyhoopla, there’s music for everyone at this year’s festival.
Although Gov Ball is known to be a music festival, it is much more than that. Fans can explore activations such as CASA BACARDÍ, where they can sip on tropical cocktails and customize fest gear, or get complimentary makeup looks at Halsey‘s about-face Beauty Shop, amongst 20+ other experiences to keep everyone busy when they need a break from the music.
Last, but definitely not least, we need to stay hydrated and fed all weekend. With 40+ food vendors, there are unlimited options for everyone. Whether you eat everything, have a dietary restriction or are the world’s pickiest eater, Gov Ball has ensured fans won’t go hungry. From vegan ice cream at Van Leeuwen, pizza from Roberta’s, massive mozzarella sticks from Big Mozz and tasty dumplings provided by Destination Dumplings, we already know what we’ll be eating! Don’t forget to wash it all down with your favorite non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages! Dunkin’, Bud Light, Tito’s Vodka and many more will be on site.
We can’t wait for this year’s festival! Let us know who you’re excited for!
