The Queens festival returned for a second year with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and alternative music

The Meadows returned to Queens last weekend (September 15-17) for its second ever edition, taking over the parking lot of Citi Field, the stadium where baseball underdogs the New York Mets play their home games. Organised by the team behind one of NYC’s other premier festivals Governors Ball, the line-up saw some of the biggest names in hip-hop and alternative music descend on the event’s own concrete jungle, including Jay-Z, Gorillaz, Nas, Erykah Badu and a ton of special guests. Relive the weekend or find out what you missed below.
