We’re still recovering from Panorama— maybe we spent too much time in the VR dome, but things still haven’t stopped spinning. But duty calls: The Meadows, from the folks behind Governors Ball, is right around the corner– it’s bringing acts like Jay-Z, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Run the Jewels, Gorillaz, and many more to CitiField from Sept. 15 to 17.
There’s some news coming out of camp Meadows today: first off, some more tickets have just been released for the Action Bronson show that the fest is presenting at Webster Hall tonight– the storied venue’s last blast before it gets a revamp from its new owners, AEG.
Second, the festival just announced its food-vendor lineup. The Meadows bills itself as an “arts and music” affair, but eats are a big part of it as well. (But you already knew that from waiting in line for Wowfulls.) This year, Joe DiStefano, the insatiable food guide who curated Smorgasburg’s Queens launch, will once again do something similar for the Meadows, bringing a host of Queens-based vendors to the grounds. The so-called FEASTival of Queens will feature arepas from the legendary Arepa Lady of Jackson Heights; carnitas tacos from the Corona-based sando slingers at Tortas Neza; ceviche from La Esquina del Cameron Mexicano; and Thai, Chinese, and Indian sweets and savories as well.
For those who want to stick with the same ol’, same ol’ from Smorgasburg and elsewhere, the fest will also offer Mighty Quinn’s, Big Mozz, Roberta’s Burger, Luke’s Lobster, Davey’s Ice Cream, and many others. See the flyer above.
