2011 Press

"A gorgeous day at Governors Island…everyone seemed to leave sunburned and happy."

– Gothamist

"As many area festival attempts often fall flat due to poor execution, the Governors Ball was a pleasant exception to the rule, leaving us looking forward to its return next year."

– Flavorpill

"The inaugural year of a music festival is really a roll of the dice. You never know what you’re going to end up with. It can turn into a stunning success or an incredible disaster. Thankfully, The Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City was definitely a success"

– Consequence of Sound

"All in all The Governors Ball was the perfect one-day festival."

– RumBum
