Founders Entertainment is also thrilled to announce Answer the Call as the official charity partner of Governors Ball 2014. The New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund is a non-profit organization that assists the families of New York City first responders killed in the line of duty.  When these heroic men and women make the ultimate sacrifice and are killed in the line of duty, the Benefit Fund steps in to provide financial assistance, a network of support, and special gatherings for the families they left behind. Today, the Benefit Fund serves over 600 families of fallen New York City Firefighters, Police Officers, Port Authority Police, and EMS workers.  To learn more about the Benefit Fund go here. A portion of all ticket sales will go towards supporting Answer the Call.


Founders Entertainment is once again honored to invite attendees to Governors Ball’s festival grounds at Randall’s Island Park. In addition to being accessible by bus, foot, bike, car, and cab, the festival will again offer ferry service from Mid-Town Manhattan to and from the festival grounds. With each subsequent year of the festival, Founders Entertainment has utilized experience and feedback from previous years to ensure transportation to and from Governors Ball is as smooth and easy as possible.
