As mentioned, the Live Nation-owned Founders Entertainment (the people behind Governors Ball) are throwing another NYC festival, The Meadows, in the parking lot of Citi Field on October 1 & 2. When the initial lineup was announced, there were still a few names TBA, and now we know that Pretty Lights, Thomas Jack and Mr. Twin Sister were added. Not nearly as exciting as, say, The Avalanches, which is now looking less likely.
The new additions join Kanye West, The Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, Grimes, and many others. The day-by-day lineup is set to be announced Thursday, along with a special pricing announcement and single day passes. Updated lineup below.
