The Meadows Festival Brings Kanye, Chance, Grimes To Queens This Fall

It’s long been reported that Founders Entertainment, the company behind New York’s Governors Ball festival, have been wanting to put on their own big music festival in Queens, just like their competitors Goldenvoice. And now the people at Founders have confirmed it. They are indeed kicking off another grand-scale festival, the Meadows, at Flushing Meadows in Queens this October, and they’ve just announced the lineup. Kanye West (whose Governors Ball set was rained out this month) will headline one day of the two-day show, and the Weeknd will headline the other. The rest of the bill leans away from guitar-rock, and it grants co-headliner status to Chance The Rapper and tropical house DJ Kygo. The bill also features the 1975, Grimes, Chromeo, Damian Marley, Mac Miller, Savages, Sylvan Esso, Pusha T, Kamasi Washington, Yeasayer, and Twin Shadow covering Prince’s Purple Rain in full. Below, check out the full lineup.
