The inaugural edition of The Meadows Music and Arts Festival will take place 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 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.
All past Governors Ball ticket purchasers will receive a promo code via email for The Meadows Music and Arts Festival pre-sale that launches tomorrow, Wednesday, June 22nd at 11 AM EST. A general on sale will follow on Thursday, June 23rd at 11 AM EST.

“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)
