The good people behind Governors Ball have a new NYC festival coming called The Meadows. You might be tempted to call it GovBall part 2 because Kanye West, whose set was canceled a few weeks ago at Governors Ball due to weather, is headlining, but a quick perusal of the Meadows’ lineup will reveal that this festival is a beast in its own right.
Joining West are co-headliners Chance the Rapper, The Weeknd, and Kygo. Also performing: Grimes, Twin Shadow doing Princes’ Purple Rain(?!), Bryson Tiller, The 1975, Kamasi Washington, Pusha T, Zhu, Savages, Metric, Mac Miller, Yeasayer, Empire of the Sun, and several others.
It’s all going down in Queens’ Flushing Meadows Corona Park on October 1 & 2. Learn more here.
