The Governors Ball is one of those special festivals that allows for fans of various different genres to come together under one figurative roof. That roof will be rebuilt for the 11th time this June on New York’s Randall’s Island, which is only a short ferry ride away from the city.

From June 3rd to 5th, Gov Ball will open its doors on the island for about eleven hours of music daily. The lineup features just under 70 artists in a wide scope of sound across the weekend. Notable electronic acts will include Galantis, Duke Dumont, Bob Moses, and Louis The Child.
Three-day GA tickets are currently on sale for about $350, while single-day tickets are priced at about $140. VIP options are available for both three-day and one-day passes. Randall’s Island is accessible by subway, train, bus, bike, and car, but ferry is the easiest mode of transportation. Ferries will run to and from the island approximately every 15 minutes; ferry tickets are sold for $55 for a three day pass and $25 for each day. Shuttle tickets are also available.

Governors Ball has been showcasing and embracing its diversity for five years now, uniting fans of all ages, shapes and sizes. Set in an island setting, the festival gives attendees the feeling of being secluded all while still feeling a New York state of mind.
