With the 2020 Governors Ball canceled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Founders Entertainment is keeping the music festival’s spirit alive by premiering the archival sets of Travis Scott, Post Malone, Major Lazer and The Black Keys as part of its “From The Vault” series.
The next installment in the live music series will support the Equal Justice Initiative, Food Bank of New York City and Crew Nation, and Founders Entertainment is urging all fans and viewers to learn more about these organizations and donate what they can. Governors Ball will also be launching a special “From The Vault” merch line, with 100 percent of its proceeds going to its charity partners. In addition, the festival will be selling professional photographs taken by the festival’s photo team over the years and its proceeds will go to both the charity partners and the concert photographers.
Governors Ball will premiere Travis Scott and The Black Keys’ sets on June 25 at 8:00 PM EST and 9:30 PM EST, while Post Malone and Major Lazer’s set will be up on June 26 at 8:00 PM EST and 9:30 PM EST respectively. All the sets will be available on the Governors Ball YouTube page.
Elsewhere in music, Sun Ra Arkestra will drop their first album in 20 years.
