Governors Ball occupies a unique place among summer concerts in NYC. Consider the competition: Central Park SummerStage blankets all five boroughs with a mix of well-curated niche acts; BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! carries out a similarly eclectic mission from its Prospect Park home base; Northside Festival corners the north Brooklyn indie market. Gov Ball, on the other hand, is a bona fide big-tent music festival. The event brings big-name rappers, beloved veteran acts, rising pop stars and more to Randalls Island. Here’s our complete guide to the Gov Ball experience.
