After two successful years at Citi Field, like a true New Yorker the Governors Ball Music Festival is on the move again, packing up its famed tattooed Lady Liberty statue and making the short trip to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Patrons will have plenty of space to spread out on grassy lawns and shady tree groves as they take in performances and enjoy refreshing beverages and culinary delights (including select vendors from Queens Night Market favorites) throughout the day. A return to the long running festival’s traditional park-side setting (after leaving Randall’s Island Park in 2021), the new location combines the easy accessibility festival fans loved about Citi Field (multiple transportation options include the MTA’s 7 train line, the LIRR), with an inviting green space as the perfect setting for a weekend of great music, good times and amazing food.
Founders Entertainment is proud to make The Governors Ball a small part of Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s storied history, and honored to be a part of the Queens community. In 2023, in addition to making a donation to the Music Forward Foundation’s scholarship program (providing scholarships to youth from under-resourced communities interested in working in the music industry), the Governors Ball Gives Back program will work to support the Queens community by partnering with local non-profit organizations including Chhaya and the Elmhurst/Corona Recovery Collective (ECRC). These local non profits will have a presence at the festival, and Governors Ball is supporting them via festival partner Propeller, where fans can earn a free ticket to Governors Ball 2023 via donating to and volunteering their time towards local community service projects and other initiatives. Beyond supporting and highlighting local organizations, Governors Ball is also proud to welcome young musicians from the local community to perform at the festival, with future festival stars from School of Rock Queens and School of Rock Brooklyn kicking things off on Friday and Sunday.
