The Meadows set times ++ new Weeknd song
UPDATE: The Weeknd has cancelled again!
Inaugural Queens music festival The Meadows goes down this weekend, Saturday (10/1) and Sunday (10/2), at the parking lot at Citi Field, and the set times are now here.
As you may have already heard, The Weeknd was supposed to headline but will now play at 5:30 PM on Saturday (so he can play SNL) and J Cole will headline at 8:45. They’re both on The Meadows stage, and Grimes is right between them. There’s probably/hopefully enough time to skip away to the Shea stage to catch Savages at 7:45 PM too. The only real conflict on Saturday is Yeasayer vs Kamasi Washington at 2:45.
On Sunday, fans of ’80s-style pop will have to decide between seeing Twin Shadow perform Prince’s Purple Rain or The 1975, both at 7 PM. Chairlift are up against Charles Bradley at 1:15, which is a tough call too. Other than that, things look pretty good. Chance the Rapper is on The Meadows stage at 5:45, followed by Kanye West on the same stage at 8:15.

Speaking of The Weeknd, he dropped another song from his upcoming album. It’s called “False Alarm” and it’s the closest The Weeknd has ever come to dance-punk… which ends up working out pretty well. The album drops November 25 via XO/Republic. Stream the new song:
