New York natives refer to Corona, Queens as a slice of Latin America in the middle of Queens, thus this year's lineup will also include an expanded presence of Latin music with artists like Peso Pluma, Rauw Alejandro, and Farruko, to name a few. All of these phenomenal acts will further be supported by topline talents of 21 Savage, Dominic Fike, Carly Rae Jepsen, Renée Rapp, Labrinth, Sabrina Carpenter, and Don Toliver. This year will welcome festival debut performances from artists Victoria Monét, Sexyy Red, TV Girl, Goth Babe, Alex G, Jessie Murph, Teezo Touchdown, Tyla, Kevin Abstract, and much more. Governors Ball has become a staple to Manhattan's music lovers, and their new permanent location in Queens has helped the festival expand tremendously over the last year, allowing the organizers to cater and give back to the community surrounding the park. In 2023 alone, fans at Governor's Ball contributed over $52,000 in donations and over 6,000 fans took actions such as volunteering through Gov Ball Gives Back in partnership with Propeller, supporting the Queens community by partnering with local non-profit organizations.


"We're deeply grateful for the economic activity the festival will generate for Queens, and we're even more grateful that the festival is partnering with some of our local nonprofits, including Chhaya, Elmhurst/Corona Recovery Collective and the Alliance for Flushing Meadows Corona Park, to work with our local food vendors and other community groups doing important empowerment work," praises Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Jr.


Governors Ball's second iteration at Flushing Meadows Corona Park comes with great convenience for those residing on the East Coast, being less than 30 minutes by train from any of the Five Boroughs with additional ease of access from New Jersey, Upstate New York, and Connecticut. The park is an historic statement in Queens with structures that serve as a beacon in America's history of innovation, design, culture, and recreation, now Governors Ball will make present-day history in the park with their return this year, infusing immersive fan activations cascading over the lush, immaculate park landscape. In addition to this, the festival will be partnering with Queens Night Market world cuisine vendors again to provide some of the city's best local, gourmet food offerings, plus a comprehensive beverage lineup paired with countless fantastic sponsors.
