The creators of the well-known New York Festival Governor’s Ball have put together a new event and will be bringing it to Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York, in just a couple of months on October 1 and 2. The Meadows Music and Arts Festival will feature performances from genres ranging from hip hop and R&B to indie rock and electronic. Passes for The Meadows Music Festival are on sale now.

With the unexpected cancellation of many Governor’s Ball sets by the likes of Kanye West and back in June due to weather, The Meadows Music Festival was curated in part to make up for those lost performances. Passes are in high demand across the secondary market and steadily rising with Kanye and The Weeknd scheduled as headliners. According to the data provided by TiqIQ, two-day passes are currently averaging $378, with the cheapest available for $251. Single-day tickets are also available for purchase.

The Meadows Festival will offer four stages throughout the park on both days with dozens of artists on the lineup. On Saturday, October 1, The Weeknd will take the headlining spot, along with performances from Empire of the Sun, Grimes and Chromeo. On Sunday, October 2, Kanye West will be the featured headliner, with other appearances from Chance The Rapper, Cage The Elephant, Mac Miller and several more set to appear throughout the weekend. Parking in Queens can be found easily and secured ahead of time for this event through to save fans money on their travel to the festival.

This new music and arts festival will also feature other activities on the grounds for fans to experience. Food from some of New York City’s best restaurants and food trucks will be featured, along with the area’s most unique cocktails to discover. Graffiti art exhibits and other visual art displays will also be announced as the festival approaches. Governors Ball attendees who missed out on West’s set will receive a special promo code for early purchasing access, and tickets are expected to continue to rise in demand as October rapidly approaches.
