The Meadows Music and Arts Festival kicks off Friday. The stacked three-day event hits Citi Field in Queens Sept. 15, a day that is actually today, so hopefully you got your hands on tickets months ago. If not, Tidal is generously streaming all three days of the festival for both subscribers and non-subscribers.
This year's Meadows, much like the inaugural outing in 2016, doesn't waste a single second of its three-day run. Friday's performers include headliner Jay Z, Migos, Run the Jewels, 21 Savage, Joey Badass, Two Door Cinema Club, and Blood Orange. Future, Erykah Badu, Gorillaz, M.I.A., LL Cool J, TV on the Radio, De La Soul, Big Boi, and A-Trak are among the must-see performers Saturday. Sunday closes out the festivities in appropriate fashion with performances from Nas, Action Bronson, Weezer, Bassnectar, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sleigh Bells, Ghostface Killah, and many more.
The streams, divided up by stages, can be found above. For a complete Meadows schedule, click here.
Jay Z's Meadows performance Friday (8:15 p.m. ET on the Meadows Stage) follows his performance earlier this month at Budweiser's Made in America Festival in Philadelphia. Jay was joined by 21 Savage, Solange, and J. Cole for the Labor Day weekend throwdown. During Jay's set, Meek Mill made a surprise performance and fans wished Beyoncé a happy birthday with a sing-along session.
This October, Jay takes his new album 4:44 on the road for an extensive North American trek that wraps at the Forum in Inglewood Dec. 21.
