A lot goes down in New York. It’s safe to say that everyone juggles an overwhelming amount of options on any given night. When festivals come into town, they can simply go unnoticed by the endless variety of buzz that’s happening amongst the 8 million of us. So there’s something that rings true when an inaugural festival successfully turns around for a second year and throws down a lineup so heavy, you feel it shake throughout Queens, then Brooklyn, then NYC.

After a successful first year in 2016, The Meadows Music & Arts Festival returns September 15th to 17th in Queens, NY at the Citi Field complex with a bang, adding a third day and boasting massive headliners Jay Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Bassnectar, Weezer, just to name a few.

As born and bred New Yorkers, the partners at Founders Entertainment are proud to have the opportunity to spotlight so many great artists from New York City while shining a light on the iconic borough of Queens. The roster impressively hosts some of the most electric performers from around the world, while keeping its heart in New York.

We made it easy for you to catch all the natives on the lineup…


With JAY Z headlining the bill, it’s no surprise that this year The Meadows Music and Arts Festival will be livestreamed exclusively by TIDAL in all countries and territories where the global music and entertainment platform is available. The livestream will feature performances from all four festival stages as they take place. So if you’re not traveling out for an experience of a lifetime, you don’t have to have all the FOMO.
