After an extremely successful first year, Meadows Festival returns to New York September 15-17, 2017. The festival made a name for itself in 2016 and is solidified its place as one of NYC’s premier music festivals with an incredible lineup drop earlier this week.
An all-genres festival taking place at Citi Field in Queens, Meadows truly caters to anyone and everyone. Though I was only able to attend one day of last year’s event, I was able to see everything from rock to reggae and, of course, our beloved EDM.
2017’s Meadows lineup includes huge names from across the spectrum that anyone would be excited about – Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jay-Z and Erykah Badu, just to name a few. But we’re all about the electronic stuff here, and let me tell you – fans of dance music will not be disappointed.
First off, we have headliner Gorillaz, the only act on the Meadows lineup that was announced in advance. The Gorillaz incredible return to live performances was kicked off with their Meadows announcement several weeks ago, and these legends alone had people lining up to buy their Meadows tickets.
Next we have king Bassnectar
. I’ve seen Bassnectar
live numerous times, but I’ve never seen him outside of a strictly EDM setting. I absolutely cannot wait to watch thousands of rock, pop and hip hop fans become Nectar converts.
Near and dear to my heart is Big Gigantic
, the amazing livetronica duo from Boulder, CO who were one of my first ever EDM loves. This might be the set I’m most excited about – these boys always throw down.
Not enough for you? There’s also pop/electronic crossover Marian Hill, the incredible scratching of A-Trak, the heavy bass of GTA, and more.
Information and tickets can be found at www.themeadowsnyc.com
. Tickets just went on sale today (May 10) and already the first 2 tiers have sold out, so don’t sleep on these. See you at Citi Field!
