We started all this 6 years ago because we were music lovers who lived in a city that needed – that deserved – a contemporary music festival. Music is always our primary focus, and with 60+ artists of all genres across 4 stages, there is something for everyone.

The next best thing after live music is delicious food, and Gov Ball features some of the best eats in town. With help from our friends at The Infatuation, we select restaurants, food trucks, and menus that prove why NYC is the foodie capital of the world.

Working with local charities, community organizations, and civic partners is not just our responsibility as a music festival, but also as New Yorkers. Volunteer programs, employment opportunities, and charitable donations have always been an essential part of what we do and why we exist. We also work closely with corporate sponsors and partners who add unique elements to the festival experience and to enhance our existence.
