From the heart of Queens, NYC comes the second annual edition of The Meadows Music and Arts Festival. Launching Friday, September 15th at Citi Field, running until Sunday, September 17th.

Big ups to Founders Entertainment, for adding an extra day to this year’s installment and rewarding music lovers with the chance to experience the 60+ artists playing across all four stages. 

The headliners for The Meadows Music and Arts Festival include Bassnectar, Gorillaz, Jay Z and Run The Jewels just to drop a few names.

When I dive into this lineup, I realize that this festival is an ode to the old school era with tons of artists featuring classic scratching as well as interweaving new school sounds. I am especially curious on what wicked set Bassnectar will lay down surrounded by this lineup and fan base. All I know is that everyone is in for a decadent treat.

Tickets for The Meadows Music and Art Festival experience go on sale Wednesday, May 10th at 2 PM EST.

Last year fans satisfied their taste buds with foods from Ramen Burger, Taqocup, Coolhaus Ice Cream, and Wowfuls— makes me hungry just seeing these pictures, so bomb. 

Hailed “The Best NYC Festival of 2016” by Stereogum, surely ensures me that tickets will be flying out the door. Don’t sleep on yours, you don’t want to miss out on seeing LL Cool J w/ DJ Z-Trip, M.I.A.Big Wild, Ghostface Killa and more electrify the stages in September.

We look forward to seeing how this lineup brings together a mix of fan bases. This festival may provide some rap and hip-hop fans with their first experience with electronic music, which could open up new friendships and collaborations that otherwise would have never blossomed.

Can’t be there physically, but want to indulge in the action?
