Founders Entertainment, organizers of New York City's famed Governors Ball, are eyeing a familiar Queens location for a new music festival this Fall.
It is still in the planning phase, but the proposed festival called The Meadows would go down October 1st and 2nd.
Citi Field's parking lot, the location used last weekend for this year's Electric Daisy Carnival, would potentially house four stages featuring music from rock to electronica as well as food vendors and art inspired by LIC's formerly glorious 5Pointz graffiti mecca.
The only problem is a potential conflict with the Maker Faire held at the New York Hall of Science located across Flushing Meadows Corona Park from the Citi Field parking lot.
Based on past numbers, close to a hundred thousand are projected to attend the Maker Faire, and they may be out of a place to park if The Meadows goes down at its proposed place and time.
And it may spell bad news for Founders Entertainment, who just like other organizers AEG Live and the Madison Square Garden Company, have been denied by the Parks Department in the past because their proposal would interfere with the public's usage of the park.
Nevertheless, The Meadows organizers have announced that they will be working with locals to provide youth job training as well as raising money for local charities including the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park Alliance.
So it is too early to tell exactly what will come of the newly announced Meadows Festival plans, but you can be sure we'll keep you up to date on that and all things Governors Ball this summer.[via DNA Info] [Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
