Everything You Need to Know to Crush It at Governors Ball This Year

Summer in New York City always brings to mind swampy subway seats, mysterious air-conditioner drips, and the occasional blackout. Until 2011, when Founders Entertainment, the team behind Governors Ball, shocked New York City by pulling off the unthinkable: a full-service music festival within city limits.
The Ball is back for its sixth fest -- its fifth at Randall's Island Park, a quaint land mass between Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx -- from June 3rd-5th this year, with its highest-profile lineup yet. Randall's may be remote, but you'll hardly feel shipwrecked there: the festival grounds will be jam-packed with food, art installations, dance parties, and some killer musical acts (like the Killers!).
