May 08, 2017, Queens, New York City - Founders Entertainment is proud to announce the lineup for the second annual edition of The Meadows Music And Arts Festival, taking place September 15th to 17th in Queens, New York at the Citi Field complex. This fall, the festival hailed as “The Best NYC Festival of 2016” by Stereogum in its inaugural year, is expanding to a third day of Music, Art, Food, and Entertainment. JAY Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Future, Nas, Bassnectar, Weezer, Run The Jewels, M.I.A., Erykah Badu and more cap a lineup packed to the brim with New York City artists and the most electric performers from around the world. Signature craft cocktails, the best food vendors in NYC, captivating street art, and more will add to the aural delights had at The Meadows 2017. Not to mention the return of the Feastival of Queens, a culinary adventure celebrating the amazing ethnic cuisine that can be found in the most culturally diverse borough in the city (if not the world).

This year’s 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 from deep within the heart of Queens. Check out to be the first to learn more.

Founders Entertainment is proud to once more partner with Metropolitan Hospitality, a subsidiary of the New York Mets, as they throw the second annual The Meadows Music and Arts Festival this September. Aside from some of the best performers from around the world, The Meadows pays homage to New York City with a large number of acts on the bill who call the five boroughs home, including Queens natives Nas, L.L. Cool J., Action Bronson, and Heems of Swet Shop Boys. 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. Continuing in their long tradition of giving back to the local communities their festivals call home, Founders Entertainment will again be working with and donating to local organizations, nonprofits, and community groups for the 2017 festival.

The Meadows Music and Arts Festival’s 2017 edition will build upon last year’s careful curation of a wide selection of featured food vendors and craft cocktails at the event. The festival will continue to embrace the amazing culinary diversity of Queens and New York City in general with mouth-watering foodie experiences like the Infatuation Village, curated by The Infatuation, and an expansion of the Feastival of Queens, curated by Queens-based food writer and gastronomic adventurer Joe DiStefano (aka "The Guy Who Ate Queens"), and dubbed “a gem” found amid “a sea of incredible food vendors,” by the Queens Ledger. Food and craft cocktail lineup to be announced soon.
