The 2014 Governor’s Ball Full Lineup & Tickets

Just in case some of you PiercingMetal readers are interested in this particular event, I’d like to share with you that the full-lineup for the 2014 Governor’s Ball on Randall’s Island has been released and tickets are available now. Check out the poster below….

Poster - Governors Ball - 2014

Last year the main bands were Kings Of Leon, Guns N Roses and Kanye West and since there were torrential rains during the Friday event day, the later bands were cancelled for that night and its headliner moved over to Saturday. They would play before Guns and since the field had not yet dried properly, many friends wrote me notes about how I was only missing out on the worst concert setting that they had ever encountered. They did love GnR of course so that was a positive. Looking over the roster of performers I will simply say that there is not even a little bit of interest for me, but I still wanted to post this so the fans of this stuff might be made aware and can get their tickets before it sells out.

I’ve embedded the ticket purchase link into the graphic poster so click that if you want to see what’s available and the main website linked below will also take you to their Social Networks. Apparently the Festival has the whole gamut of them so do give it a look. Are you excited about this event this year? Will you go? Did you go last year? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments because its always fun to hear about the experiences.
