A little background on The Governors Ball - it started back in 2011 on Governors Island as a one-day festival and included activities, games, a bunch of NYC restaurants, and obviously, a ton of awesome music from a variety of genres.

The 2011 launch of the multi-day music festival included Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Empire of the Sun, Mac Miller, Big Boi of Outcast, among others.

2012 brought a second day to Gov Ball, a new venue, Randall's Island, with headliners Beck, Passion Pit, Kid Cudi and Modest Mouse.

Over the years, artists that have performed at the festival include Cage the Elephant, Fiona Apple, The Lumineers, Kanye West, Guns N' Roses, Young the Giant, Jack White, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, Jack White, The Black Keys, Florance + The Machine, Vance Joy, Tame Impala, The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie, Cold War Kids, Tool, Phoenix, Lorde, The Head and the Heart, The Strumbellas, Franz Ferdinand, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Third Eye Blind, Chvrches, The 1975, and the list goes on and on. Full past lineups can be found here.

Fast forward to 2021 they've got a new venue and three full days of music for you.  So let's see those live music photos for your chance at being there to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Gov. Ball, thanks to WRRV, Dutchess Beer, and Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer!
