Governors Ball issues statement on Randall’s Island damage

Governors (Beach) Ball (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Gov Ball

Governors Ball says:

The Governors Ball Music Festival is honored to call Randall’s Island Park home and is working closely with the New York City Department of Parks and the Randall’s Island Park Alliance to ensure it is in great condition for all New Yorkers to enjoy for the months and years to come. The Governors Ball aims to leave the Park in even better condition than it was before this year’s Festival, which was hit by record rains earlier this month.

Sodding work in the entire Harlem River event area will begin soon to the NYC Parks Department’s specifications, following preparation work that has been done over the past few weeks. That prep work also was delayed by additional rain this month. Work is being done to make the land more durable in the future, including the installation of a drain to combat over saturation of the field. Governors Ball is working with RIPA and Parks to upgrade some other areas in the event space that were not damaged in this event.
