Randall's Island Park is set alight
The Governors Ball Music Festival is a multi-genre music festival in New York City. Arguably responsible for bringing the mega multi-day festival phenomenon to the Big Apple, Governors Ball is now on the eve of its tenth outing.
Taking place on Randall's Island, the festival is located right in the city using the famed New York skyline as a background and setting attendees loose to explore the city after the headliner closes the main stages each day.
Star-studded and ever-eclectic lineups draw from all ends of the hip-hop, rock, pop, and electronic spectrums, ensuring that Governors Ball remains one of the country's most respected, talked about, hyped, and sought-after music festivals.
Situated in the middle of NYC, Randall's Island Park is an island that provides the open, green space needed for such a mammoth musical celebration.
