The Meadows Music and Arts Festival is headed back to Citi Field for a second year, and their newly-announced lineup is pretty solid. Headlining acts include Jay-Z, Gorillaz, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The bill also features M.I.A., Run the Jewels, Erykah Badu, Nas, Future, Blood Orange, Weezer, TV on the Radio, Sky Ferreira, Joey Bada$$, Sleigh Bells, A-Trak, LL Cool J, Ghostface Killah, Broken Social Scene, Tegan and Sara, and the baddest, boujee-est trio of them all, Migos. It's all going down September 15th through the 17th near—but not IN—Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens.
Last year's inaugural Meadows fest was something of a mixed bag. The lineup was great, and acts like Mac Miller, Chance the Rapper, and The 1975 turned out stellar sets... but then there was the whole Kanye West incident. After missing his headlining set at Governors Ball on account of rain, West was forced to cancel his Meadows performance mid-set after receiving word that his wife, Kim Kardashian, had been burglarized and temporarily held hostage in a Paris hotel room.
In the end, Meadows showed some promise as a part of the growing NYC festival scene, even if it was one big parking lot party.
Tickets are on sale May 10th at noon, and will run you $275+.
