The only thing that's better than a super dope festival itself is the after party that follows it. 

Because if you think about it, you're essentially just rallying and the fun never stops and your smile is glued onto your face and the music pulses through you and before you know it, it's the next day. 

This year's Meadows Music and Arts Festival from September 15th to the 17th will be a jam-packed event with nonstop energy and good times. 

For three straight days, you can enjoy food, drinks, and of course music, from 11:45 a.m to 10 p.m. at Citi Field in Queens. 

And if you already got your tickets, AWESOME! If you didn't, get them here so we can tell you about the after party already, jeez. 


There are more than just a couple after parties, and they're going to be potentially more outstanding than the food selections (even though we can't guarantee that because good food outshines mist 

Although tickets for the festival itself have been on sale for a bit, the after party tickets will be available for purchase to the general public starting today, August 10th at 12 noon. BUT if you're a Citi credit or debit cardholder, you can purchase tickets for the different shows here

The way it works is this: after parties are essentially extra concerts after the festival, with the exception of the Antibalas show on Thursday, September 14th to kick off the festival. You can catch it at Gramercy Theatre starting around 8 p.m. 

The rest of the after party shows will go down the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights after the festival ends. Each show will be held at a different venue, from spots like the Brooklyn Bowl, to Irving Plaza, and more


Artists performing include Ghostface Killah, GTA, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, BADBADNOTGOOD, and Wild Belle. The first show is actually tonight, with Action Bronson at Webster Hall– the last show before the venue's long renovation. Don't miss out, and check out the rest of the schedule hurrr.

So if you're pumped about the festival but might not be able to attend all of it, know that there are after party options where you can still enjoy a damn good time. We hope to see you guys there this fall!
