Governors Ball Planning Overview

Check out the video below for a brief overview of Gov Ball, important dates to know, most common questions, and our top tips.


Governors Ball 2018 Dates

Governors Ball 2018's official dates are June 1st to June 3rd. This is pretty standard for Governors Ball at this point - they are always the first weekend of June. I would say it's a nice time of the year to host a music festival if Governors Ball hadn't be plagued by weather issues almost every year except 2017.

Governors Ball 2018 Lineup Date & Tickets

Gov Ball 2018

The Governors all 2018 lineup is here and it is fantastic. The headliners for 2018 will be Eminem, Jack White, Travis Scott and NY Legend Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Notable undercard acts include CHVRCHES, a reunited Gaslight ANthem, NERD, Halsey and more. It's a great lineup from top to bottom and one I'd expect to sell much better than last year. We will have a full lineup review coming soon!

Useful Tips For Governors Ball Tickets

  • Generally Governors Ball doesn't sell out, but with major headliners like Eminem and Jack White I would be a little more concerned about it this year. I still don't think it will sell out quickly, but it wouldn't shock me

  • Governors Ball is one of the few festivals I really think VIP is worth it. We have a full article (link below) if you are interested but if you can afford it go for it

  • I personally don't buy the Gvoernors Ball transportation packages; I prefer to just walk across the RFK Bridge and after that request an Uber or take the subway

  • Governors Ball offers a nice payment plan that lets you split up your pass into multiple payments, definitely take advantage of it to make the payments a little less financially stressful

  • Governors Ball uses a tiered ticketing system so the longer you wait the more it will cost you (prices rise with each tier). I suggest making up your mind early.
