After leaving its longtime home of Randall’s Island in 2021, Governors Ball made the move to Queens for two years at Citi Field. For 2023, the festival will stay in Queens but move to the iconic Flushing Meadows Corona Park, site of two world’s fairs and the annual U.S. Open Tennis Championship. Festival organizers Founders Entertainment are affirming their commitment to the borough with a number of initiatives, including partnerships with local non-profit organizations including Chhaya and the Elmhurst/Corona Recovery Collective. Local musicians from School of Rock Queens and School of Rock Brooklyn will kick off the festival on Friday and Saturday, plus the event is working with local institution Queens Night Market to bring a wide selection of Night Market culinary favorites to its new home.
“Words can’t express how excited we are to bring Gov Ball to Flushing Meadows Corona Park, one of the most special and storied parks in all of New York City,” Tom Russell, co-founder and partner at Founders Entertainment, said. “Since moving to Queens in 2021 we’ve been overwhelmed by the welcome the community has shown us, and we look forward to continue being a part of and giving back to that community for years to come. We are honored to call such an iconic venue our new home, and we thank Mayor Adams and his administration and Queensborough President Donovan Richards for their trust and support.”
