Founders Entertainment are proud to present the inaugural Governors Ball Music Festival (www.govball.com), a one day event to be held June 18 on New York City’s Governors Island. Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, and Empire of the Sun are joined by Big Boi (of Outkast), Neon Indian, People Under The Stars, Mac Miller, Miami Horror, Passion Pit (DJ Set), Reptar, Outasight and other artists to be announced over the coming weeks. Closing out the festival will be Pretty Lights, whose rising popularity will be complimented by his brand new state of the art production.

The Governors Ball promises to be a massive mid-summer dance party of epic proportions. Performances will take place on two stages without overlapping sets, and feature stunning views. The artists appearing at the inaugural Governors Ball are diverse in scope and sound, spanning indie rock, dance, electronica, and hip hop, but the common theme and guiding force behind the festival is music that gets people of all walks of life moving, dancing and having a good time.

One of the final frontiers of the New York area concert scene, Governors Island has recently played host to a variety of successful music events including concerts by Erykah Badu, Panda Bear, Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, MIA, Sleigh Bells, Passion Pit and many others. The Governors Ball will mark the first time in which a full-fledged music festival will take place upon the island.  Access to and from the festival grounds will be via ferry boats, which will leave from Pier 11, at the corner of South Street & Wall Street in downtown Manhattan.
