All the Food Coming to Governors Ball This Year
Hot on the heels of Coachella releasing its own fabulous line up of food vendors for this summer’s festivities, New York City’s own Governors Ball music festival has done the same: At the Randall's Island extravaganza, you’ll be able to chow down on cookie dough, corn dogs, burgers, and lobster rolls.
Last year, Milk Bar and Magnolia Bakery were both vendors at the festival. While neither is (unfortunately) returning this year, there are still some great desserts lined up, like DŌ edible cookie dough, and Van Leeuwen ice cream. Some classic favorites in the savory category are also making another appearance at the festival this year: Both Roberta’s Pizza and Luke’s Lobster will be keeping you satisfied in between sets.
You can find the full list of vendors here but rest assured that there will be a wide range of treats for you to enjoy, from ice cream sandwiches and burritos to chicken nuggets and Belgian waffles. A total of 54 vendors will be on deck to keep you fed so you can rage on worry-free. After all, the best fuel for the mosh pit is a big meal.
The Governors Ball didn’t forget the drinks either. There’s an entire cocktail program lined up for the festival, which includes Gov Ball Punch by Bacardi, Pablo Honey by Tito’s Vodka, Don Julio Paloma, and an Aperol Spritz—which you can find in the liquor gardens. Bluestone Lane coffee will also be on tap, and this year Miller Lite is sponsoring the beer garden.
The music festival takes place from June 1-3 at Randall’s Island Park and will feature performances by James Blake, Jack Black, and Eminem, among others.
