THE GOVERNORS BALL MUSIC FESTIVAL
VIBE The spotlight is on New York’s Randall’s Island Park when jean-shorts-wearing twentysomethings and backpack-toting teens descend upon the East River isle for this multi-genre, multi-stage tradition.
TUNES Echoing the host city’s melting-pot status, this year’s sonically diverse slate includes acts for Gen Xers (Jack White, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and millennials (Halsey, Travis Scott.)
EATS Last year’s cool-kid lineup of Gotham grub, which was curated by the popular food-and-drink website Infatuation, included Roberta’s famed Bee Sting pizza (pepperoni, honey, and chili flakes, oh my!), artisanal icy paletas (Mexican ice pops) from La New Yorkina, and Dough’s rainbow-bright gourmet doughnuts.
