Festy News: Fifth Annual Governors Ball Announces Impressive Lineup With Big Names


Founders Entertainment is at it again bringing a remarkable mix of artists to New York City for the 3-day Governors Ball Music Festival held June 5-7 2015 on Randall’s Island.

Last year’s GovBall was a huge success with an eclectic mix of close to 70 bands mostly in the indie rock and pop genres with a sprinkling of other sounds as well. With the 2015 lineup announced this week there are no doubts that this year will be even better. “It’ll be one hell of a party,” Jordan Wolowitz, a partner with Founders Entertainment, added in a statement regarding the announcement of the lineup.

It’s not clear who will be headlining each of the three days just yet, but with this year’s roster it could be anybody’s guess who will serenade the day into the night. Some of the notable acts include The Black Keys, The Decemberists, DeadMau5, Drake, St. Vincent and Florence + The Machine. Check out the full lineup in the poster and video below. Also check out ‘s review of the 2014 festival with photos and links to several short videos from the weekend.

The festival organizers are doing even more this year to build a better experience for attendees, including RFID wristbands as a cashless option for those who prefer to not hassle with cash or credit cards on site.

Tickets are on sale TODAY at noon for the 2015 Governors Ball at govballnyc.com. Just a heads up for the procrastinators out there: 2014’s GovBall did sell out.

Governors Ball can be followed on Instagram, Twitter, FacebookYouTube, and Spotify.
