Governors Ball 2017 will feature redesigned VIP amenities and locations, a signature lineup of the best food NYC has to offer curated by The Infatuation, an expanded selection of craft beer options, and the lawn games, mini golf (two unique 18 hole courses), and street art.
Governors Ball will once again focus on giving back to the greater New York City community with the 2017 festival. In 2016 Governors Ball generated $37.5 million in economic benefits for New york City, bringing the past three years cumulative total (2014-2016) to $125+ million dollars. The festival also continued its long track record of giving back to the community by working with and donating to local organizations, non-profits, and community groups. In addition to direct donations to organizations like the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, Founders Entertainment encouraged festival goers to give back to the community by offering GA tickets to Governors Ball 2016 in exchange for volunteer hours at local non-for-profit food programs. Eighty volunteers completed approximately 25-27 hours each for various organizations including the Salvation Army, Food Bank for NYC, NY Common Pantry, Project Find, and the Randall’s Island Park Alliance to help reduce hunger and improve the lives of New Yorkers in need.
