now the Governors Ball people want to do a festival in Flushing Meadows Corona Park too
How many big music festivals can Flushing Meadows Corona Park handle in a year? (Or NYC for that matter?) The potential number keeps growing. First, AEG -- the owners of Goldenvoice, the people behind Coachella -- applied to do a festival called Panorama the same month as Governors Ball. Then Madison Square Garden said they're to do one too. Perhaps fighting back a bit, Founders Entertainment, the company behind Governors Ball, has applied to host a three-day festival in Corona Park from Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2016, according to the Queens Chronicle.
This will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.
