Founders Entertainment is excited to announce that Governors Ball Music Festival will be returning to the Citi Field complex in Queens, New York, from June 10th through June 12th this summer. After celebrating the festival’s 10th anniversary this past fall with an incredibly successful and cathartic experience described by Rolling Stone as “the spiritual healing we all desperately needed,” Governors Ball 2022 will once again serve as the kickoff to summer, returning to the event’s traditional early June dates. And what better way to welcome the season than an incredible lineup of 60+ performing artists including headliners J. Cole, Halsey, and Kid Cudi, all with strong ties to NYC. With J. Cole having attended St. Johns in Queens, and Halsey and Kid Cudi having launched their careers in The Big Apple. They’re joined across the weekend by performers including Flume, Playboi Carti, Roddy Ricch, Glass Animals, Migos, Jack Harlow, Kaytranada, Joji, Louis The Child, Clairo, Jazmine Sullivan, Still Woozy, 100 Gecs, Japanese Breakfast, Becky G, Black Pumas and many more.

A special presale for 3- and 1-day GA and VIP tickets will be available exclusively for Citi® cardmembers from today, January 25th at 10 AM EST, through Thursday, January 27th at 11:59 AM EST.

3- and 1-day GA and VIP tickets (including payment plan options) will be available to all ages via beginning Thursday, January 27th at 12 PM EST.

Governors Ball’s 10th anniversary in 2021 was a welcome return for music fans hungry for the festival experience after the previous year’s quiet. That emotionally charged energy was palpable both off and on stage, whereas Rolling Stone reported, “Caroline Polacheck began to cry during her first song because she was so moved to see people enjoying live music again.” Billie Eilish highlighted her own love for and history with the festival, having gone from a mid-day act to a headliner in just a few years. “I played Gov Ball in 2018 … and it was my favorite thing in the world…. It was my favorite thing I’d ever done, and this might be that, the second time,” she said.

“Gov Ball 2021 was unquestionably a success,” wrote Gothamist of the weekend. “In short, it was a blast,” said Consequence, while AV Club praised the “genre-diverse lineup that had something for everyone.” Just as was the case with last year’s event, Governors Ball will again work in close consultation with the Mayor’s Office and City of New York to create appropriate health guidelines to keep staff, guests, artists, and fans safe. The work the Founders Entertainment team put into the 2021 event did not go unnoticed. “Out of the five music festivals we attended, Governors Ball had the best COVID screening,” wrote Okayplayer. The 2022 edition will also feature a signature lineup of the best food NYC has to offer, as well as craft cocktails, beer, surprise pop-up performances from the subway and street performers, eye-catching art installations, and more.

Governors Ball Music Festival promoters Founders Entertainment will also be making a $25,000 donation to the New York City Mayor’s Fund’s relief efforts for the victims of the Bronx apartment building fire. The Founders Entertainment team was devastated to learn about the tragedy. As born and bred New Yorkers, the festival co-founders have made giving back to the city Governors Ball calls home a priority throughout the festival’s decade-long history. Founders Entertainment has proudly supported the local community through their Gov Ball Gives Back program, and is always ready to step up in times of need as well.

The greater Governors Ball community can show their individual support for the victims as well by donating to the relief effort via the Bronx Fire Relief Fund.
