Win Tickets To Governors Ball 2014!

Oh brother, are we excited about this one. This year’s Governors Ball Music Festival is just six weeks away, and we’re super psyched to say we’ve got tickets to give away to six lucky Songkick users!

At just four years old, Governors Ball has fast tracked its way to the pinnacle of New York’s live music calendar. On the lush green grass of Randall’s Island, beneath an epic Manhattan skyline, the festival has welcomed the world’s biggest artists to the East Coast – and this summer’s edition is no exception.

The Strokes (seriously!) will play their first New York show in over three years, and their only scheduled date for 2014. Add Jack White, Vampire Weekend, OutKast, Skrillex, Phoenix and Foster The People to the mix – and we’re only just getting started.

So here’s the deal. We’ve got five pairs of weekend tickets and one grand-prize pair of VIP tickets to give away! To be in with a chance of winning, simply:

1) Follow @songkick and @govballnyc on Instagram

2) Take a photo of your ‘festival failsafe’ – your essential, can’t-leave-home-without-it festival accessory!

3) Post it to Instagram with the hashtag #festivalfailsafe (like this!)

We’ll pick six winners at random at noon EDT on May 12th. Full T’s & C’s below. Get creative, and good luck!
