Another new addition to the Governors Ball 2017 festival site will be a 21+ oasis open to all 21+ ticket holders, where those in need of a break from the action, and a refreshing beverage to go with it, can catch some shade while they recharge for the next set on their schedule. In addition to the newly added 21+ GA area, all VIP areas at Governors Ball 2017 will be 21+ as well.

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 lives.

3-day GA and VIP tickets (including payment plan options) are available starting Friday, January 6th at 12 noon.
