The Meadows, a two-day weekend festival, will include headliners such as Kanye West and The Weeknd, and other amazing acts like Chance the Rapper, Mac Miller, Bryson Tiller, and 30-plus more acts!

Tom Russell, partner in Founders Entertainment, said:

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.

Some other interesting acts to perform at the festival include  ZHU, Pusha T, Post Malone, Grimes, as well as an unknown and unnamed surprise artist! All of this extravaganza will happen on October 1st & 2nd.

The four-stage experience at Flushing Meadows Corona Park is sure to be a showstopper, especially with the dynamic list of performances to be displayed ranging from hip-hop to indie and electronic music.

The festival has also promised to have graffiti installations, as well as a high-end food and drink program.
