“A Festival with a New York Heart” — The New York Times
Your City. Your Festival.
MUSIC IS WHO WE ARE
We started all this 9 years ago because we were music lovers who lived in a city that needed – that deserved – a contemporary music festival. Music is always our primary focus, and with 60+ artists of all genres across 4 stages, there is something for everyone.
FOOD IS WHAT WE LOVE
The next best thing after live music is delicious food, and Gov Ball features some of the best eats in town. Each year we select restaurants, food trucks, and menus that prove why NYC is the foodie capital of the world.
ACTIVITIES ARE WHERE WE CONNECT
Interactive photo booths, life-size board games, and unique outdoor activations are all apart of the summer experience. Gov Ball has them all and then some.
ART IS WHEN WE CREATE
New York City’s place in art history is undeniable, and the urban aesthetic has been shaped and styled by street artists who make statements, create beauty, and inspire. Gov Ball features street artists from around the city to capture the NYC spirit and authentically color the urban festival experience.
PARTNERS ARE WHY WE EXIST
Working with local charities, community organizations, and civic partners is not just our responsibility as a music festival, but also as New Yorkers. Our Gov Ball Gives Back program, employment opportunities, and charitable donations have always been an essential part of what we do and why we exist. We also work closely with corporate sponsors and partners who add unique elements to the festival experience and enhance our existence.
