Governors Ball Music Festival

Learn More

The Governors Ball is one of NYC’s most iconic music festivals, with concert-goers and fans eagerly waiting for June to arrive. After helping Founders Entertainment launch this now epic event on Governors Island in 2011, they shifted gears and were looking for a team to help them produce this ever-growing festival in a new location. 

In 2013, we returned to help them on Randall’s Island, and have continued ever since. In fact, we handle three major roles – production management, site management, and sponsorship supervision. It’s unusual for a single company to be entrusted with all three of these prodigious responsibilities, but we have earned our client’s confidence by continuing to execute this event flawlessly. A place where ecstatic fans can rock out with multi-genre artists across three stages, and where some of the biggest names in the business entertain including Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Phoenix, The Strokes, De La Soul, Kayne West, Travis Scott, to name a few.

Not only do concert-goers attend for the endless parade of talented performers, they come for fun in the sun, with interactive art installations, games, delicious NYC eats, and to create lasting memories with friends. Over the years we’ve designed and managed dozens of innovative sponsor activations including MTV, Beats, Perrier, and Tito’s Vodka.

Over 150,000 ecstatic fans flock to Randall’s Island each summer for The Governors Ball Music Festival. This iconic event is covered by venerated media outlets including Billboard, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Time Out, and the New York Times.
