Sad to report the 2020 Governors Ball has been canceled due to Covid-19. The health and safety of attendees, staff and artists are of utmost concern. Stay safe. Stay healthy. 2021 awaits!
Every year the Governor's Ball music festival kicks off New York's summer concert season with three days of top shelf acts on Randall's Island. Rain or shine Randall's Island becomes the center of NYCs musical universe. Enjoy an all day celebration with food & drink available from the best vendors in the city!
Manhattan Ferry Ferries run to and from Randall’s Island each day of the festival, throughout the day. Ferries depart to the festival from East 35th Street Ferry Landing. Outbound ferries will run until all festival-goers have left the island.
Subway Take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 125th street. Once there, you can hop on the X80 express bus at 125th street and Lexington avenue, and the X80 will take you directly to the festival entrance.
Note the X80 is an express bus and costs $6.50 round-trip fare, unless you come from the subway when it $3.75 is deducted. Monthly MetroCards do not work on the X80 bus, so make sure you have a MetroCard with cash on it or exact change.
There are no events taking place on this date.
