Governor’s Ball cancels 2020 festival in response to spread of COVID-19

The festival was supposed to take place from June 5 to 7 in New York

Governor’s Ball has officially cancelled their 2020 festival due to the rapid spread of COVID-19.

Over the past few weeks, the organizers behind the festival have been going to great lengths in an attempt to find a new date for the event, but eventually came to the conclusion that there are “no sufficient options available.”

The festival, which was set to take place from June 5th to June 7th in New York City, would have seen performances from renowned acts like Tame Impala, Missy Elliott, Flume, Vampire Weekend, and more.

“Now is the time to be smart, look out for one another, and do our part to help the city and the world,” a statement read. “We encourage everyone to listen to health officials, be safe, and be excited for the future when we are all on the other side of this.”

Anyone who has already purchased a ticket to the festival can either transfer their ticket to next year’s festival or request a refund.
