The Governors Ball 2020 lineup has finally just been announced! As one of the country’s biggest annual music festivals, Gov Ball has a reputation for featuring some of the best lineups of any festival, while providing a unique experience in the nation’s largest market.
While many festivals take place in rural settings that have open, sprawling spaces on which the stages and campgrounds can be set up, Governors Ball takes place on Randall’s Island in New York City, which is just a short ferry, bus, subway ride, or even walk away from other boroughs, making transportation a breeze compared to other festivals that are located in the middle of nowhere and force the majority of attendees to sleep in tents all weekend.
We know it can be a tall order to figure out all of the logistics when it comes to spending a weekend attending a festival like Gov Ball, and we at TickPick have got all of the important 2020 lineup and festival information, as well as tips on how to get the cheapest tickets in the blog below!

Does Governors Ball Have Single-Day Tickets?
Most festivals only release full weekend passes – at first. Once they sell out of all of their 3-day passes, Governors Ball has traditionally released single day tickets for fans who are only looking to catch a single headliner. These single day passes hit the secondary market and do typically cost more than the price for individual days if you purchase the full 3-day pass at once, but if you’re only looking to go for one day or can make it one day, it’s worth saving the money and going with the single day.
How to Get Sold Out Governors Ball Tickets
If you weren’t able to secure Governors Ball tickets directly through the website’s original on sale date, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Passes can still be purchased from secondary marketplaces, although the prices will not be at face value.
