This June, live music fans will experience the best Governors Ball yet, as the once upstart music festival celebrates its seventh consecutive year as New York City’s premiere live music event, and by acclamation, one of the top music festivals in North America. Governors Ball 2017 will feature redesigned VIP amenities and locations, a signature lineup of the best food NYC has to offer curated by The Infatuation, an expanded selection of craft beer options, and the lawn games, mini golf (two unique 18 hole courses), street art, After Dark concert series, and that “only in New York” concrete jungle vibe “Gov Ball” has become known and loved for. Another new addition to the Governors Ball 2017 festival site will be a 21+ oasis open to all 21+ ticket holders, where those in need of a respite from the action, and a refreshing beverage to go with it, can catch some shade while they recharge for the next set on their schedule. In addition to the newly added 21+ GA area, all VIP areas at Governors Ball 2017 will be 21+ as well.

Governors Ball will once again focus on giving back to the greater New York City community with the 2017 festival. Helmed by born and bred New Yorkers, Founders Entertainment will look to build upon their efforts surrounding last year’s festival. In 2016 Governors Ball generated $37.5 million in economic benefits for New york City, bringing the past three years cumulative total (2014-2016) to $125+ million dollars. The festival also continued its long track record of giving back to the community by working with and donating to local organizations, non-profits, and community groups. In addition to direct donations to organizations like the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, Founders Entertainment encouraged festival goers to give back to the community by offering GA tickets to Governors Ball 2016 in exchange for volunteer hours at local non-for-profit food programs. Eighty volunteers completed approximately 25-27 hours each for various organizations including the Salvation Army, Food Bank for NYC, NY Common Pantry, Project Find, and the Randall’s Island Park Alliance to help reduce hunger and improve the lives of New Yorkers in need.

More information on Governors Ball’s economic impact and community engagement may be found here.

Founders Entertainment is once again honored to invite attendees to Governors Ball’s festival grounds at Randall’s Island Park (supported, maintained and programmed by the Randall’s Island Park Alliance www.randallsisland.org). In addition to being accessible by MTA bus, bike, cab, and ferry service from Mid-Town Manhattan to and from the festival grounds, the festival is accessible to pedestrians via the RFK Bridge, the 103rd street footbridge, and Bronx Randall’s Island Connector.

Imagine Dragons Premiere Video for Single “It’s Time” on MTV

Imagine Dragons Premiere Video for Single “It’s Time” on MTV

KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records artists Imagine Dragons have been tapped by MTV as its PUSH artist of the week for April 16th. Throughout the week, MTV will feature exclusive content including the premiere of the Las Vegas band’s new video for their current single “It’s Time” across all of its television and digital platforms. “It’s Time” is rocketing up the Alternative Rock radio chart where it is currently positioned at No. 14. The track is the first single off Imagine Dragons latest EP Continued Silence, which is currently No. 6 on Soundscan’s Alternative New Artist Albums chart (iTunes).

“Any time I hear music, I also see visuals in my mind,” says Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds of the video, which was shot on a dry lake bed in Barstow, CA. “’It’s Time’ is an emotional song that was written at a very transitional period of my life. I’ve always loved conceptual videos that leave room for the viewer room to interpret it in a way that is most personal to them. That is what we tried to do with this video. The director had a great vision for representing the song’s meaning in a subtle way. We wanted the video to be cinematic and true to the song.”
