At the inaugural Governors Ball Music Festival there will be plenty to do in between sets. In partnership with The Official World Series of Beer Pong (WSOBP), Governors Ball will play host to a beer pong tournament. Attendees can team up and compete for a chance to win prizes including Backstage Passes, Merch, 2012 Governors Ball Tickets, and a spot at the 2011 WSOBP National Championships (where the grand prize is $50,000). Governors Ball has also partnered with SPiN New York to bring Ping Pong to the festival. Ping Pong tables and SPiN New York staff will be located throughout the festival to assist in all your Ping Pong desires. The festival site also comes complete with outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, allowing festival-goers to take a break from the music and comedy to shoot some hoops or show off their beach volleyball skills.
