New York's Governors Ball festival has announced that it will return later this year after having to postpone its 2020 dates due to the pandemic. The 2021 edition of the Randall's Island festival is scheduled to take place from Sept. 24-26.
"We’ve decided to move the 2021 show to a time of year that is both more realistic and safer for all," said festival producer Founders Entertainment in a release. "And while there are still question marks and unknowns in the World, rest assured that we are working closely with City and State authorities to ensure that the next Gov Ball will be a safe and amazing experience."
The 10th edition of Governors Ball was set to take place in June of 2020, but organizers were forced to cancel the event in March when New York City was devastated by COVID-19. Acts scheduled to play the 2020 edition included Tame Impala, Stevie Nicks, Missy Elliott, Solange, Flume, Vampire Weekend and more.
