The lineup for this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival is in place featuring Beck, Passion Pit, Modest Mouse and Duck Sauce.
The second annual festival takes place June 23-24. Although the event is keeping the same name, the fest is relocating from New York City’s Governors Island to Randall’s Island, a green space on the East River between East Harlem, the South Bronx and Astoria, Queens.
The new location will include improved venue facilities and multiple transportation options. Governors Ball Music Festival will provide shuttle bus service from Williamsburg Brooklyn and ferry service from Mid-Town Manhattan to and from the festival grounds. Fans can also get to the festival from bus, foot, bike, car and cab.
