  • Why You Should Attend Gov Ball


      Do you love daydreaming to music? Is your music palate broad? Do you enjoy socializing? Do you like “cleaning up nice”? If so, you should definitely attend music festivals! Specifically, the Governor’s Ball!

      Currently, the Governor’s Ball is the only music festival hosted in New York City. Dubbed Gov Ball, the festival debuted in 2011, and still remains highly publicized. Moving from Governor’s Island, to Randall’s Island, to Citi Field, the festival now settled in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. Like the entire World, Gov Ball paused in 2020 due to COVID. At Gov Ball, a multitude of genres are present from K-Pop, Rap, R&B, Latin, Pop, Indie, and more!

      This year, the Dale News and Ram Nation Radio received the amazing opportunity to cover Gov Ball. Dale News E-Board members Justin Capera, Andrew Mindes, Aaron Roberts, and Shannon Wylie all attended, while RNR President Jonathan Jones and alum Kirbs Cruz also represented. Both clubs joined forces and offered a campus-wide giveaway, in which two lucky random students won free three day admission to the festival.

      Headlining were Kendrick Lamar and Odesza. Other known acts performing included Lil Baby, Lil Uzi Vert, Diplo, Lil Nas X, Ice Spice, Joey Bada$$, Pusha T, Central Cee, and Pinkpanthress, to name a few. Meal options were endless; a paradise for “foodies”! Overall, Gov Ball was a smashing success!
