Performers include Kanye West, marking his only North American festival appearance in 2016, The Weeknd, Chance The Rapper, Kygo, Grimes, The 1975, Bryson Tiller, and the newly added Pretty Lights, Thomas Jack, and Mr. Twin Sister among many others.

“Given their track record for talent with Gov Ball, Founders comes through with an equally impressive lineup for the two-day weekend festival.” – Complex
Founders Entertainment is proud to partner with Metropolitan Hospitality, a subsidiary of the New York Mets, as they launch The Meadows Music and Arts Festival this fall. As born and bred New Yorkers, an important pillar of the plan for The Meadows Music and Arts Festival is civic engagement with the Queens communities surrounding the event. Founders Entertainment has maintained a long track record of giving back to the neighborhoods its festivals and events call home by working with and donating to local organizations, nonprofits, and community groups. In 2015 alone their Governors Ball Music Festival generated hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars in economic activity and wages for NYC, with many of those jobs created in the East Harlem and South Bronx neighborhoods surrounding Randall’s Island. Through similar partnerships with local organizations in Queens to be unveiled in the coming weeks, Founders Entertainment look forward to bringing the same economic impact and benefit to the Flushing Meadows Corona Park area and greater NYC through The Meadows Music and Arts Festival.
A major element to The Meadows Music and Arts Festival will also be the careful curation of a wide selection of featured food vendors and craft cocktails available to satisfy the hungry crowds at the event. The festival will embrace the amazing culinary diversity of Queens and New York City in general, following an attention to detail and immaculate taste similar to Governors Ball’s stellar food line up, which in 2016 won praise and attention from Food and Wine, New York Daily News, AM New York, In Style, and many others for what GQ described as the “culinary glory” found at the festival. Food and craft cocktail lineup for The Meadows will be announced soon.
