The lineup for the second annual The Meadows Music and Arts Festival has finally been unveiled and features the god MC Jay Z as a headliner. 

This year's event, which will once again take place at Citi Field in Queens, New York City, has been extended from two days to three and will be livestreamed exclusively on Jay Z's Tidal service. What's more, this counts as the third festival Jay will be headlining this fall; Made in America and Austin City Limits are the other two. There's also strong speculation that the Brooklyn rapper is working on a new album, so three major festival appearances (and potentially more) don't seem like just a coincidence.

How do you feel about that, Hov?

Other notable acts on the bill include Nas, Future, Erykah Badu, 21 Savage, Joey Badass, Migos, and Lido. Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Gorillaz round out the headlining slots alongside Jay Z. You can check out the full lineup below.
