    Summer 2012 just ended, but we're already planning for Summer 2013.

    Founders Entertainment announced the dates for the 2013 Governors Ball Music Festival. The third annual installment of the successful New York City festival will take place Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 in beautiful Randall's Island Park, and feature the best in indie, hip-hop, electronic music, rock, pop, and more. Governors Ball will continue to build upon the incredible success of the past two years, incorporating additional performance areas to the festival grounds, expanding the scope and strength of the line up, and adding to and improving existing attractions and activities including art installations, games, gourmet food trucks, craft beer, wine vendors, and much more. Founders Entertainment is committed to presenting Governors Ball audiences with the very best a music festival has to offer, and looks forward to the 2013 festival.

    In its sophomore year Governors Ball made the jump from a one to two day festival, further cementing its place as the preeminent music festival in New York City, and one of the premier music events in the North Eastern United States. With both 2-day General Admission and VIP tickets sold out, energetic crowds poured into the grounds each day to enjoy amazing food, craft beer, art installations, fun activities, and an incredible lineup of musicians including Beck, Passion Pit, Kid Cudi, Fiona Apple, Modest Mouse, Explosions in the Sky, Duck Sauce, Chromeo, Atmosphere, and more.

    So the event organizers will likely want to top Year 2 and that's a very good thing for fans.

    Are you planning ahead and planning to attend?
