When: Saturday, October 1 - Sunday, October 2, 2016
Hot Spot: Citi Field, NYC
Deets: Founders Entertainment, the team behind The Governors Ball Music Festival, is thrilled to announce the inaugural edition of The Meadows Music and Arts Festival, to be held this coming October 1st & 2nd at the Citi Field complex in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in the storied borough of Queens, New York. Featuring performances from Kanye West, The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper, Kygo, Grimes, The 1975, Bryson Tiller, Savages, Metric, Empire of the Sun, Chromeo, Kamasi Washington, Sylvan Esso, and many many more. The Meadows Music and Arts Festival will play host to over 42 artists across four stages, showcase a world’s fair of cuisine from around the globe, and feature a tour de force in craft cocktails from some of the finest mixologists around. The performance from The Weeknd will mark his only NYC area show in 2016, and the booking of Kanye West was born out of his weather related cancelled appearance at Governors Ball 2016. Founders Entertainment saw a booking for West at the new The Meadows Music and Arts Festival as a way to follow through on bringing him to New York City for his only North American festival appearance in 2016.
Who You May Spot: Featuring performances from Kanye West, The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper, Kygo, Grimes, The 1975, Bryson Tiller, Savages, Metric, Empire of the Sun, Chromeo, Kamasi Washington, Sylvan Esso, J.Cole and many many more.
