The good folks behind one of our favourite New York festivals Governors Ball have just announced a brand new festival is coming this fall. Taking place from October 1st to 2nd at the Citi Field complex in Queens, The Meadows Music & Arts Festival will host headlines Kanye West, the Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, and Kygo will be joined by Grimes, Empire of the Sun, Pusha T, Kamasi Washington, Yeasayer, Chairlift, Bryson Tiller, and more for its inaugural year.
“Launching the Meadows Festival in Queens this fall with an incredible lineup of music, art, food and culture is a dream come true. As a native New Yorker I grew up in awe of the innovative spirit surrounding Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. With this event we can shine a spotlight once again on this iconic neighborhood and bring with it the economic benefits, strong community partnerships and local hiring for which Founders Entertainment is known. We are so grateful to the de Blasio Administration and Metropolitan Hospitality for giving us this opportunity and to all the artists who have enthusiastically agreed to take this inaugural ride with us.”
– Tom Russell (Partner at Founders Entertainment)
