We are the promoters and producers of The Governors Ball Music Festival - New York City's premier music event. The 2018 event features over 60 acts, including Eminem, Jack White, Travis Scott, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Halsey, N.E.R.D, James Blake, Khalid and MANY more. Ask us anything about the festival, the bands, how we do things, and what's in store for June! More info/tickets available at govball.com
Are you able to say who will be closing Saturday night against Travis Scott? There's talk that it could be either Halsey, The Gaslight Anthem, or Silk City, but that is the biggest lineup clash no one can seem to really figure out.
Travis v Gaslight.
Halsey before Travis on main. -JW
1. Why was James Blake withheld from the original lineup? Were you still in negotiations?
2. Why did you retweet a video of Frank Ocean at Panorama last summer?
did that really happen?
Will it be self service for water again like last year? That was my main complaint from last time as I feel having workers at the stations speeds everything up!
This decision hasn't been made yet, but i will be sure to pass this onto our team so it's factored when making the call! - TR
Hey guys. Been going to Gov Ball since 2014, and the Meadows since 2016. I'm a big fan of both fests and have a couple questions:
How has Panorama/AEG shows in NYC affected your booking? Was there an artist you wanted but lost to the competition?
The Meadows is a great hip-hop oriented fest. That said, despite the great circular layout, the venue definitely leaves something to be desired. Are there plans to move out of the Citi Field parking lot any time soon?
1) Frank Ocean and LCD are the only 2 acts I can think of that we lost out on due to that other thing. Mostly due to facts that I can not divulge over reddit...but do some digging and i'm sure you'll figure it out...-JW
So when are you guys gonna book Radiohead already??
GREAT QUESTION. -JW
I’ve been going to Governors Ball for several years. You guys do a great job picking artists for the lineup. I loved picks like bjork and Conor oberst. I’m curious to know some artists that are on your wishlist to get? Headliners or just awesome rare gems?
Alright hate to be that guy but what is being done to inhibit the amount of underaged drunken teenagers that ruin this fest for everyone around them?
We've actually instituted a number of measures to combat this and saw great improvement in 2017. Roaming security and ID scanners have worked wonders, and we have also created a few non-VIP, 21+ areas for folks to hang in if they want to take a breather and hang amongst adults only. - TR
This will be my first time attending Governors Ball, after 2 amazing years at Meadows. With an insanely stacked undercard, my only question is:
Any hints or insight y'all can give to who Brockhampton may be clashing with this year?
Brock vs Manchester. -JW
Can you tell a first-timer some advice on how to be rail for Eminem?
get there early, my friend. -JW
Was Brand New booked but later dropped after the allegations?
Hello! I’m a college student who plans concerts and other large scale events for my university, and would like to work for a company that organizes music festivals upon graduation. Just wanted to pick your brain with the following questions:
1) In your opinion, what is the most effective way of incorporating brands/sponsors into your events?
2) In the past few years, Governor’s Ball and The Meadows have emerged as the premiere festivals of New York City. What steps did you take to grow/expand these events?
Thank you for your time!
1) The most effective way to do this is to make sure that brands and sponsors are truthfully enhancing the patron experience. If brands and sponsors are offering amenities, activities, or elements that patrons would be interested in on their own, aside from sponsor involvement, then it will most likely be a successful integration.
2) With Gov Ball we started off small to make sure the market wanted a festival. We gradually grew the event each year and have continued to tweak event elements based upon attendee feedback and suggestions. Listening to the fans and passionate music lovers will always help us improve what we do. By the time we launched Meadows we already knew that the market wanted a multi stage multi day music festival, so we went big from the start and curated a lineup that we knew people would respond well to. We also created a venue layout that was the best use of the unique space and terrain. - TR
Can you drop any hints on who will be playing the after dark shows?
let me flip this - who would YOU like to see play an after dark show?
Is the plan to have Japandroids, ManOrch, Menzingers, and Gaslight all play on the Honda/Big Apple side of the festival throughout Saturday? #YoureDoingGreat
Roids and Manchester are on Big Apple, Menzingers and TGA on Honda. -JW
Question about The Meadows (which I love).
There's been some chatter about it going all hip-hop and pop. Is that true? Loved having some rock headliners like Gorillaz and RHCP and in the undercard last year so hope that continues!
Heyo! A lot of people have been complaining about festival lineups this year and many articles have been published about how festivals have become lackluster in their booking. Do you find that to be the truth and if so, do you think that's only indicative of the music that artists put out?
people are entitled to their own opinions. america!
How is Jerry the dog? When is he going to be featured prominently on one of your lineup posters? Thats just good marketing.
Jerry is killing it. He's currently napping on the floor next to me.
How did you guys land on Travis Scott as a headliner? Did somebody else drop out?
i take it you don't like travis? - jw
I'm also wondering who James Blake will play against..?
As of now, we're planning to stagger it against Jack White in a similar fashion to how we did Flume/Chance last year. -JW
I have VIP tickets but what would you suggest is my best viewing option with that package? Do you think I still need to wait all day in VIP to be up front for Em? I’m the biggest Stan in the world & wearing a (modified) wedding dress just in case he wants to sweep me up before my actual wedding this year 😉
Love your enthusiasm and excitement - it will surely be an EPIC set. Our advice, so you get as close to the stage as possible, is to get to the festival at doors, head to the main stage VIP area, and scope it out. See how many other passionate folks are there and make the call then as to whether you need to camp out in a spot or whether you can play it by ear and come back later. - TR
So Depeche Mode just announced an NYC show three days after GovBall. Given that they are exclusively booked through Live Nation, were they ever considered a serious option for GovBall? If so, how come they were not booked?
I'm a fan of theirs personally, but we prefer the lineup we have. -JW
I’ve gotten 3 day passes to GovBall every year for the past 5 years with my friend and concert buddy, and we made the collective decision to not buy tickets (yet) this year, for 2 reasons...
1) the insane amounts of rowdy, drunk, underage concert goers creating a less than ideal environment
2) your continual inability to highlight female performers, especially as headliners
I LOVE GovBall (so so much - I still talk about being front row at the incredible Vampire Weekend show a few years back) since it’s in my backyard and would love to go back - what are your plans to address these issues?
Firstly, thank you for your continued support of Gov Ball over the years! Truly means a lot. To address your 2 reasons...
1) We have made a conscious decision based on attendee feedback and surveys to add more 21+ areas around the festival, beyond the VIP areas. These areas will feature delicious food & drink, great ambience and decor, and a more relaxing environment than being amongst the masses. We are also continuing to combat underage drinking thru a multitude of means including roaming security, ID scanners, etc. etc.
2) Each year we book a ton of female artists, and have gone after many female headliners, including this year with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Halsey. As with any artist, their availability depends on their routing and touring schedule, so many times it's up to chance and whether the stars align if you will. If you look at our lineups year over year you will see a TON of female performers. Which other female artists or headliners would you like to see in the future? - TR
What stage will Amine be at?
What stage is Cut Copy on? And who are they currently up against?
Thanks for doing this guys!
Main stage against 2 Chainz. -JW
Besides the two of you, who else gets to have input on who should be booked for the coming years fest? Close friends? Live Nation? Streaming numbers? Pop culture? And, just curious, do you have anyone already booked for 2019?
100% of the artists booked on our shows are only chosen by Founders. -JW
I don't know if it was his Panorama show, but there was a definite retweet and a little excitement which turned into disappointment :(
that is weird!
Are there internship opportunities at Founders Entertainment?
We love interns. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will shoot you some info on availability, how the program works, etc. - TR
Not that I don't like him. Just that he has never been at the top of the poster for a multi genre event like this until now. Wondering how you guys decided to pull the trigger on him as a headliner.
Number of factors...sometimes we like to be the first big festival to 'graduate' an emerging act to headliner status, kinda like Vampire Weekend in 2014.
Final decision was made last fall when I went to see Kendrick/Travis at Barclays and the entire arena was at capacity for Travis' opening set. Had never seen that happen before. -JW
Wondering if their are any acts on this years Panorama lineup you guys tried to get or any acts on your lineup that they tried to get?
What are your thoughts on the Panorama lineup this year? Have you ever attended? Do you think they lowered their pricing in order to undercut Gov Ball?
We love David Byrne. -JW
How did the decision to book the Gaslight Anthem's reunion happen? They're my favorite band and I can't believe this is happening.
Also any insight to their set? The 59 Sound has a runtime of 42 minutes. Will they be getting over an hour to also play some greatest hits spanning the years? It's been too long since they've come around.
They are one of our very favorite bands.
They have a very long set time at gov ball....:) - JW
Please don't do that 😓
ok will try to switch it! -JW
Yea they’d be great! I caught them at bonnaroo 2008. I’d love to see Radiohead headline as well. Keep up the great work guys. I’d love to play one year. Www.thelightsbeneath.com just saying 🤘
We'd love to see them headline as well. One day!
Congrats on landing some exclusive acts for the lineup (Yeah, Yeah Yeahs, the Gaslight Anthem, N.E.R.D, etc.)!!! In booking an act, how important is exclusivity? Are you less likely to book an act if they are playing at a bunch of other festivals?
Exclusivity is a very important criteria for some of the bigger acts, for sure. -JW
do you know what time 2 chainz is gonna be performing in the day? also any hints on food vendors? thanks for doing this every year :)
Chainz is 445-545pm
So when is Bon Iver going to play one of your festivals? I was hoping they were going to get the James Blake spot.
One day. Not for lack of trying, just a timing thing.
I know The Meadows has generally leaned hip-hop, but I really loved last year’s mix of genres. Is that something you’re planning to continue?
We love eclectic lineups.
Where’s the info on volunteering?
Info on volunteering via our Gov Ball Gives Back program will be posted in the coming weeks. Stay tuned via our socials and email list for the announcement and details. - TR
Pearl Jam does not have an NYC date and their tour ends in early September. Will they be playing at The Meadows?
As far as we understand it, their baseball stadium shows are the only US dates they'll have in 2018? They'll always be high on our wishlist though.
What up with Meadows this year? Will it happen in the parking lot of Citi Field again? Id rather it move somewhere with grass.
Great minds think alike. We are hard at work on Meadows 2018 and looking at various venue options, all of which are on grass. - TR
Wheres the time slots for these performers when will it be public?? I want to know what time each artist is performing.
we usually release it in May, but stay tuned...that could change. -JW
Hey Tom -- what would Del Preston do??
Probably sleep upside down like keith richards told him to, with a cigarette in mouth obviously
How good is the view with just the general admission tickets? I’d like to be as close as possible during Eminem’s performance. Would I need to upgrade to VIP to get closer to the stage?
The view is great for GA tickets, you may just have to get to the main stage early in the day to post up and claim your space. VIP tickets allow you to have a lot more flexibility with time, as you only need to go in the VIP area an hour before his set for an amazing view. - TR
Will there be 2xl shirts?
What has been your most surprising success and what has been your most surprising failure?
1) ask TR! : )
2) GNR 2013 took some time, but we made it out alive.
Can Brockhampton get booked for a Gov Ball after dark show?
Hopefully. They're on tour so might have to leave town to get to next show...-JW
Hi Gov Ball,
I've always enjoyed your video content for the festival. Would there be a way for a freelance director like me to get on board with your creative team and work on some content for the festival this year?
Email email@example.com with your interest, reference the Reddit AMA, and send your resume and examples of your work. Someone will be in touch soon. - TR
Any idea when after shows will be announced?
late april/early may -JW
Hey all, a Dutch concert venue recently made the news by introducing free lollypops that attendees can hand over to other concertgoers if they are actively disruptive during a set: https://www.rtlnieuws.nl/opmerkelijk/lul-niet-lollie-tegen-pratende-concertbezoekers
Could you please consider introducing this at GovBall as well?
Interesting idea! Will chew on it (no pun intended). - TR
Who is Post Malone playing against?
As of now, YYY's -JW
Approximately what time will Cuco and Brockhampton preform?
cuco - 1245pm
brock - 545pm
Hey founders thank you for doing this.
Can you disclose who will be on the main stage before Eminem on Sunday?
Chvrches is directly before Em on main - JW
Hi guys. Will Cut Copy be getting a tent set on Saturday?
main stage - JW
2018 will be my 5th gov ball, this year is perhaps one of the best so far. Can you tell us where Silk City is playing? Very dope that this is their debut is at gov this year
Closing the Big Apple Stage saturday night -JW
no one. -JW
Hey guys...any acts that you were really pushing for that you were unable to book this year?
hmm...leon bridges, thom yorke, king krule are a few we wanted to book but they weren't available during our time period. next time! -JW
who will margo price play against?
Kali Uchis - JW
Am I able to get dropped off at Randall’s island? Or do I have to go to 103 st and walk on the bridge? And if I call an uber home where could that pick me up?
Yes you will be able to get dropped off at Randall's. There will be a designated drop off area which your vehicle will be directed to. This being said, there will undoubtedly be traffic getting onto and off of the island so you may be better off getting dropped off at the RFK or 103rd street bridge and walking from there. Once the show is done and you want to leave, you should open the Uber app and follow the directions within the app as to where to go to request a car. - TR
what stage will cuco perform on?
Can you say who will be against Third Eye Blind on Sunday?
Also, will there be any the same Brockhampton merch for sale as they have on the tour?I missed their nyc dates and I wanna pick up some merch.
Khalid against TEB.
and Yes. -JW
Maggie Rogers and Pond set times? please? :)
130pm and 445pm, both on main stage - JW
I’m very excited to see lil uzi and Eminem on Sunday, will they be clashing with each other since they are both rap artists?
they're playing at different times, you're good...-JW
What's your reaction when you see a lineup stacked Mad Cool in Spain? Are European festivals just at an advantage at the moment.
BTW I love Gov Ball's lineup btw so this is not a knock against it.
looks awesome. we tried to book PJ and Arctic, but alas both were not available during our time period. Next time...-JW
who closes the tent on sunday?
I plan on skippin the sub-headliner shows on saturday in order to get up close for travis scott. My question is, who would be performing at the timeslot before the headliner? Like the time mark ronson played last year before Childish Gambino.
Halsey is playing directly before Travis on main stage on Saturday.
Stage and time for lil uzi?
Tent - 8-9pm. -JW
I’m already set for this years Gov Ball but I’m greed and want more hype any hints of when we can see the Meadows line up or clues to who will be performing??? Keep up the great work guys You’re Doing Great
Hi yes, how absolutely fantastic are your current interns? Asking for a friend.
We consistently, year in and year out, have the best interns in the world.
Also, do you guys have a personal favorite lineup or is that not appropriate for you guys to really say?
we look back at gov ball 2014 fondly. big strokes fans....
What's the deal with the Moses Sumney 2nd show? You were supposed to get us parameters, no?
-Sam and Jackie
i thought u guys were letting me know?
100 person capacity, everyone blindfolded.
Can we get a hint at potential artists at The Meadows this year?
Who you like to be at The Meadows this year?
No way that Jack White plays against YYYs right? Really big factor in whether me and my friends will be going on Friday.
YYY playing direct before Jack on main stage. -JW
Hey all! My question’s mainly for Jordan since I know he comes from a booking background- what were the biggest challenges you faced when you were just starting out within the booking/talent buying worlds? I’m a college student that dabbles in both areas and sometimes I feel like I’m just spinning my wheels. Thanks so much!
building relationships. it takes a lot of hard work and persistence to get 'important' people to return your calls when you're getting started. start out small, and continue to build. if you have something good, people will start to listen.
