The Meadows Music and Arts Festival, only in its second year, has become a must-attend event for those in the New York area. The 2017 edition ups the ante by expanding from two days to three (Sept. 15-17), and with a lineup that includes Jay Z, Gorillaz, Future, M.I.A., 21 Savage, and Erykah Badu, attendees will have more than enough big name acts to catch.

That said, don't sleep on the artists who will be taking the stage earlier in the day as Meadows locked in some choice talent to round out the bill. We've highlighted a handful who are poised to make an all-day affair at Citi Field worth it.
