Governors Ball, which debuted in 2011, will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

The new location is more accessible by public transit, while there will also be limited parking available. (Governors Ball’s organizers, Founders Entertainment, previously hosted the Meadows Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field in 2016 and 2017).

Due to continued Covid-19 safety concerns, Governors Ball organizers said in a statement that they will be working closely with New York City officials and follow all state and federal guidelines as mandated at the time of the event.

“Building a recovery for all of us means reconnecting with the iconic events that make New York City the greatest travel destination in the world,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “As more New Yorkers become vaccinated by the day, we’re proud to support arts and culture and welcome back Governors Ball and their fantastic lineup, including New York City’s own Princess Nokia, A$AP Rocky, and King Princess, among others.”
