History of the Governor's Ball
The Governor's Ball has been a mainstay of the NYC festival scene since 2011. In the first edition, it mainly featured indie and hip-hop acts. Current headliner Kid Cudi also headlined the festival in 2012, when it was turned into a two-day event. The festival has expanded every year since.
After being forced to cancel in 2020, Governor's Ball returned in 2021 with a stacked lineup featuring Billie Eilish, Post Malone, Phoebe Bridgers, Megan Thee Stallion, A$AP Rocky, and J Balvin.
The 2022 edition of the festival promises to be an enthralling event.
