Taking place on Saturday June 23rd and Sunday June 24th, Gov Ball 2012 will be expanding to a two day event and will feature some of the best acts in the indie, electronic, rock, hip hop and pop music scenes. We are expanding our programming scope to add new flavors to the festival experience, and we couldn't be more excited to diversify our musical offerings!

We are also thrilled to announce that we are moving the event's home to Randall's Island! With more ways to access the festival venue (public transpo, ferry, car, shuttle/party bus, bike, and by foot), the overall festival experience will be improved and y'all will have an easier time getting too and from the venue each day. In addition, Governors Island is undergoing some pretty serious construction next summer, so returning there was not a possible option. We hope all are as excited about this as we are. We're counting down the days until we open gates and get this party started.
