A Look Back At Governors Ball 2011

Find the best deals for concert tickets right here at SeatGeek! If you’re on the West Coast, make sure you check out Treasure Island Music Festival!

Formerly a U.S. Coast Guard base in southern Manhattan, Governors Island will be hosting 12-hour music festival Governors Ball 2011 on June 18th with two stages and non-overlapping sets – so you don’t have to miss any artist’s performance. This massive dance party will feature Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Empire of the Sun, and Big Boi from Outkast.  In addition to the music, there will be comedians (who will also serve as MCs for each stage), activities, food trucks, interactive art installations, and of course, enough beer and wine to sink the island.

If you’re afraid overheating from the excessive dancing and raving at Governors Ball, don’t worry there will also be free ice cream from the Ben and Jerry’s Truck Tour.

Update regarding Ferry times for Governors Ball 2011: Ferries will start running to Governors Island at 11:15am from Pier 11 and will run back and forth until the end of the festival (set times are here). Do not go to Governors Island website for ferry times, as they are not relevent to Governors Ball.
