NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio stated “Building a recovery for all of us means reconnecting with the iconic events that make New York City the greatest travel destination in the world… As more New Yorkers become vaccinated every day, we’re proud to support arts and culture and welcome back Governors Ball and their incredible lineup, which includes New York City’s own Princess Nokia, A$AP Rocky, and King Princess, among others.”
GovBall 2021 at Citi Field in Queens, NY offers excellent availability through several modes of public transportation, including the MTA’s 7 train line, the LIRR, and limited parking for attendees who chose to travel. The festival will incorporate a 360° layout similar to The Meadows Music and Arts Festival. According to Consequence of Sound, the event’s circular nature allows for walking the grounds a breeze. No stage will be more than five minutes from the next, and they will be set up such that sound bleed will never be an issue. The Governors Ball will enhance the highly praised experience by carpeting the venue with high-grade astroturf and incorporating other facilities to enhance the enjoyment of music lovers.
