We couldn’t be more stoked that the Governor’s Ball Music Festival will return next year from June 8-9, 2013. It’s going to be held once again at Randall’s Island in New York City. The Big Apple has struggled for years with big festival venues, but for our money, Randall’s Island is really taking off as the go-to venue for catching a show. Large grassy fields, skyline of the city, and the river as a backdrop really made us feel right at home. Hell, I was so comfortable that I participated in a 90 minute interview on the BBC while watching Modest Mouse while drinking a Foster’s while reclining in the grass.
Pre-sale ticketing will be announced in Ocotber while the lineup should drop sometime in February.
