The Meadows Music and Arts Festival is going to have a seriously legendary inaugural year.

Besides our totally dope crew that's going to be chillin' both days, ALL THESE AMAZING FOOD VENDORS will be there, and so will Kanye West, but whatever.

You can still grab tickets– but we're giving away tix for you and three members of yo' squad (YEP, 4 FREE passes) to attend both Saturday and Sunday as VIPS. VIP means access to cell phone charging stations, air-conditioned bathrooms, and VIP lounges that get you up close seats. Enter here to win!

Here's the thing though, the party will be raging on before and after the two day festival– check out these after parties hosted at some of NYC's hippest venues.

So if you can't score tickets to the main event, you're not sh*t out of luck just yet.

All the after parties are hosted by Bud Light Music and as reported by DoNYC, check out their page to enter for a chance to win a pair of tickets to each one!
