Governors Ball Music Festival, set for June 5-7 at Randall’s Island in New York, N.Y., has been canceled due to coronavirus concerns. Fans can receive refunds on their tickets or transfer them to the festival’s 2021 edition.

“It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the cancellation of Governors Ball 2020 due to COVID-19,” read a statement from the festival.

“Simply put – due to current government mandates and the evolving situation in NYC, it is neither safe nor prudent to move forward with our June dates,” the statement read. “The well-being of our fans, artists, staff, vendors, partners, and the surrounding NYC community is always our #1 priority.”

“Over the past few weeks, we have gone to great lengths to find a postponement date that works for all parties involved,” continued the statement. “Due to a myriad of planning and logistical issues, we have come to the conclusion that there are no sufficient options available to us. We are pushing ahead, and are already jumping into plans for 2021.”

“As a city and a community, we will all get through this,” concluded the statement. “New York always does.”
