Created by Founders Entertainment, the same folks behind New York’s Governors Ball, the festival’s Kanye booking is due to the bad weather that forced the star to nix his Governors Ball appearance. Kanye’s appearance at The Meadows will be his only North American festival performance in 2016. The two-day event will also feature The Weeknd’s only New York City-area appearance this year.
It’s a sure bet you won’t leave The Meadows hungry. The festival boasts a wide selection of featured food venders along with craft cocktails as it rounds up the best culinary experiences Queens and New York City have to offer.
A presale for all past Governors Ball ticket buyers launches June 22 at 11 a.m. The general onsale starts June 23 at 11 a.m. All times EDT. Go to TheMeadowsNYC.com for more information.
