New York’s The Meadows Music And Arts Festival debuted in 2016 with a lineup that included Kanye West, The Weeknd, J. Cole and Chance the Rapper. The festival was unofficially crowned the city’s best of the year, but it was marked by both highs (J. Cole subtly revealed he was working on 4 Your Eyez Only) and lows (Kanye cut his set short upon discovering that his wife had been robbed at gunpoint in Paris).
The 2017 installment, going down September 15-17 at Citi Field in Queens, NY, hopes to build upon the success of its predecessor, and the lineup looks very promising already. JAY Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Future Kamaiyah, BADBADNOTGOOD, Ghostface Killah, 21 Savage, Tory Lanez, Joey Bada$$, De La Soul, Migos, Erykah Badu, Run The Jewels , Nas and a host of others are scheduled to perform throughout The Meadows, which has now been expanded to three days.
The Meadows marks the first time where both JAY Z and Nas will have major slots on a bill. Fans can only hope that the two share stage time together during their respective sets.
Tickets are available Wednesday, May 10th.
