January 7th, 2015, New York, NY — Founders Entertainment announced the lineup for the 2015 Governors Ball Music Festival. The fifth annual edition of New York City’s premier live music event will celebrate a half decade of good times and great music in the Big Apple, from Friday, June 5th through Sunday, June 7th in beautiful Randall’s Island Park. Aside from showcasing a wide spectrum of Dance, Indie Rock, Hip Hop, Americana, Electronica and Pop all weekend long, Governors Ball will also feature the incredible culinary options and art installations that contribute to the festival’s unique New York City vibe. 3-day GA and VIP tickets are available now on GovBall.com through Eventbrite. Full festival lineup and poster below.
Over the past five years Governors Ball has conquered a notoriously difficult market for music festivals, survived a historic tropical storm, and grown from a one day event to a three day affair to emerge as one of North America’s most revered music festivals.
“We’re thrilled to announce the 2015 lineup for Gov Ball, which we feel is our strongest yet,” says Jordan Wolowitz, a partner at Founders Entertainment. “This June will be a celebration of our 5th anniversary as NYC’s premier music festival. We would like to send our most sincere thanks to the fans and artists across the globe that have helped make Gov Ball what it is today, as well as to the Randall’s Island Parks Alliance, who has been an incredible partner to us over the years. See everyone June 5th! It’ll be one hell of a party.”
The coming 2015 festival will continue to build upon the scope of past years’ programming and festival layout in order to ensure maximum options for fun in a comfortable, safe, and visually entertaining environment. Governors Ball will also utilize RFID wristband technology to provide patrons with an optional cashless system at this year’s festival. The cashless system will allow patrons a quick and easy method to pay as they go for food, beer, and merch at the festival. This optional system will speed up wait time in lines, give patrons who prefer to leave their cash at home added security, and most importantly make it easier for them to focus on the music, art, food, and friends they came to the festival to enjoy.
