Free water is to music festivals as free breakfast is to hotels – it’s not always standard but it damn well should be. As such, we will have refillable water stations provided by Manna® at the festival to quench y’alls thirst throughout the weekend. Unlike other water delivery systems that merely dispense municipal water, these water refill stations are fitted with state of the art filtration systems (including ultraviolet sterilization) to bring you premium, refreshing and great tasting drinking water free of charge. In addition, these water stations will reduce the amount of plastic bottles used at the event, and as a result, we all score points with Mother Earth. Stay hydrated, stay green, stay cool & remember to purchase your cobranded Manna® bottle at all of 4 of our water stations!
This 21+ area is your perfect oasis from the hustle and bustle of the ball. Nicely shaded, select foods, picnic tables, cocktails… this area has everything you need to relax in between sets. The Best Kept Secret won’t be a secret for long…

The Wear Orange campaign started when teenagers in Chicago wore orange to school as a way to honor their friend Hadiya Pendleton, who was shot and killed at just 15 years old. Now in its fourth year, National Gun Violence Awareness Day is a call for everyone who believes we can do more to save American lives from gun violence to unite in this one simple action: Wear Orange.
This year, Gov Ball is showing our support for Everytown and their Wear Orange campaign. Make sure you stop by their tent to see how you can get involved.Visit Website
