Three days of New York's most popular music festival returns to Queens this weekend.

Celebration Gov Ball 2023 started today, June 9, at noon in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. What you need to know before you go there.

How to get to the location

The festival will have a new home in 2023, moving to Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens for the first time in its history, and hosted Citi Field last year.

There are two main ways to get to the park by train. If you're using Amtrak or NJ Transit, get off at Penn Station-NY and take the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) train on the Port Washington branch to the festival. Those coming from Grand Central should take train 7. The stop for both trains is Mets-Willets Point.

If you want to take a taxi or hitchhike, there is a designated pick-up and drop-off area on Shea Road. For cyclists, there is rover parking at the main entrance, but you need to bring your own padlocks.

Important note: there is no parking at the event, so the festival organizers encourage all concert goers to use public transport.

What time do the gates open

The gates open at 11:45 on each of the three days of the festival and the concerts end at 22:00.
