Pre-Fest Press

"This urban bash has grown into a major contender"

– Rolling Stone

"Governors Ball truly is the cream of the crop… so far."

– Death And Taxes

"Governors Ball in NYC is currently leading the pack for ‘Best Festival Lineup'"

– The 405

"New York’s First Successful Music Festival"

"Acts that have gotten top billing at festivals like Coachella in previous years have been knocked down to second-font status (sorry, Phoenix) — that’s how much star power we’re dealing with."

"The Governors Ball lineup has just been revealed. And, we may have freaked out a little when we saw it, because this roster is quite certainly the best in the festival’s four-year history."
