Governors Ball Music Festival is an annual music festival held at Randall’s Island, New York City. It is one of the most well-liked and anticipated free musical events of the year. This amazing event, which includes musical performances by local as well as national acts, takes place every May. The festival is organized by the New York Governor’s Office. It is completely free to attend and all ages are welcome to join in on the fun.
Music lovers of all ages can be found lining up outside of Randall’s Island every day of the festival. The main focus of the festival is to celebrate the musical talent brought to the island by many performers. In previous years the musical lineup has included such high-profile artists as: David Archuleta, Will Smith, Pat Monahan, Avril Lavigne, Chris Crocker, Lenny Kravitz, Taj Mahal, and many other musical talents. But this year, Lady Gaga and Dave Matthews have been added to the bill. Headlining acts include: Danza, Dave Mason, Lee Brice, and Mark King.
During the festival you will find great entertainment at each of its venues. At each venue there will be dance lessons, keynote speakers, musical entertainment, and more. In addition to the dance performances there will also be special guest appearances from well-known entertainers. For instance, at the VIP Grandstand you will see American Signer Chris Edge. Other musical acts include German rock band Weezer, Icelandic singer Bjork, and The Rolling Stones.
If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the festival, make sure that you purchase them early. The general sale for tickets to the festival is happening a few weeks prior to the festival. You will want to act quickly since it can sell out quickly. Also, because it is an event with high ticket prices, you will want to ensure that you get a refund if you find out that you are not going to be attending the festival.
When you look into the musical line-up for Governors Ball this year you will find a lot of familiar names. The initial performers were reunited for the third consecutive year by Weezer. In addition to Weezers, The Last Goodbye Tour band was back for the second year in a row. Dave Matthews Band, with which we became acquainted when they played at our office, is also a well-known band and should be a very interesting presence at the festival.
A new band to be added to the musical lineup is Icelandic band Bjork. They recently played in the United States and will be appearing at the festival. Other well-known bands include: Chromeo, The Rolling Stones, Dave Matthews Band, Lee Ritenour, and many others. These are just a few of the well-known bands who will be performing during the event.
You will also find that the Presidents Ball Music Festival line-up has a great deal of local talent as well. Many of these local bands have never performed in front of live audiences before, and you can tell that they are up for the challenge. Many of these bands play at smaller events such as festivals. They will be up for the challenge and will likely give their best performance at the Governors Ball event.
One other aspect of the musical line-up that is worth mentioning is that you will find several acts who have not ever performed in front of a live audience. Such acts include The Warlocks, The Doobie Brothers, and The Roots. All three of these bands have gained a large amount of popularity over the past few years. You may want to attend the event this year if you happen to know any of these bands. You will surely be glad you did.
