RANDALL’S ISLAND UPDATE
As New Yorkers who grew up going to Randall’s Island often for sports, concerts, and other special events, the restoration of Randall’s Island wasn’t just an ethical responsibility to us, it was a personal one.
Gov Ball is proud to announce the completion of restoration efforts at Randall’s Island Park to repair the grounds. We have made good on our promise to leave the park’s event site in even better condition than it was before this year’s festival, which was hit by record rains on Friday of the event, due to Tropical Storm Andrea.
We have worked hand in hand with the Randall’s Island Parks Alliance Turf Crew and the NYC Department of Parks to make sure all the work has met their professional standards. We’re thrilled with the results, and we can’t thank them enough for their support, and hard work throughout this process.
In addition to field restoration, Gov Ball has invested in infrastructure improvements to the Randall’s Island Park Event Site that will prevent future flooding and event site damage.
We would like to thank all of New York, the Parks Department, Randall’s Island Park Alliance, and most importantly, the fans for allowing Gov Ball to call New York City, the greatest city on earth, our home.
See you in June 2014. It’s gonna be a good one.

We want to sincerely thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping make Gov Ball 2013 such a special weekend. Your good spirits and upbeat energy really helped us weather the storm, so to speak. The heavy rain on Friday was not what we hoped for going into the weekend, but with your help, and great attitudes, it was another fantastic year, and an awesome experience. Huge thanks to Kings of Leon as well for changing their plans and coming back on Saturday. Here’s to a very sunny, beautiful, and epic, Gov Ball 2014…

Important Info for Today
June 8, 2013
KINGS OF LEON TODAY!
Kings of Leon will be performing today at the Gov Ball NYC Stage at 6:45pm. We couldn’t be happier that we were able to pull this off for you awesome people! The schedule has been updated so please make sure to check this out and plan your dance party activities accordingly.
FRIDAY TICKET HOLDERS WILL BE HONORED FOR TODAY’S SHOW
If you purchased a Single-Day GA or a Single-Day VIP Ticket for Friday’s show, your ticket will be honored for today’s show, with GA access. We felt it was our duty to reward you folks who braved the weather yesterday with an entire extra day of the fest, and the ability to see Kings of Leon perform their first show in NYC in 3 years. Please note two important things:
- This offer includes festival access but does not include transportation or parking
- Friday VIP Tickets will not have VIP access, only GA access.
BE PREPARED FOR MUD!
The grounds are still very muddy because of yesterday’s weather and we are working with the Island to do everything we can to make the grounds as manageable as possible. With that said, there are limitations on what can be done per the Randall’s Island Parks Department. We STRONGLY recommend boots for your comfort throughout the day.
You can reprint your tickets if they got wet or muddy yesterday. We strongly recommend you do that so scanning is not an issue for today. You can also pull up your tickets via our mobile app or the Eventbrite app, which we strongly recommend. Again, if you are bringing paper tickets, PLEASE REPRINT CLEAN AND DRY TICKETS FOR TODAY!
