The Meadows is only in its second year of operation. But the Queens-based festival isn’t biding its time before going massive. The festival will return to Citi Field on September 15 with Jay Z, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Future and Nas in the large-font slots.

In addition to the big names at the top of the bill, the fest will also include sets from Weezer, Run The Jewels, and a newly freed-up M.I.A. Migos will bring their sudden stardom to the bill and nostalgic people on either side of the rock-rap divide will be satisfied by sets from De La Soul and TV On The Radio. Joey Bada$$ will bring his astounding new direction to the stage and Kamaiyah will bring her undeniable warm-weather songs.

Given that the fest is run by Founders Entertainment, the people who transform Randall’s Island into Governors Ball every year — the sheer depth of the festival shouldn’t be shocking. But pulling off a fest lineup that’s solid all the way to the very bottom is still commendable. Check out the full lineup poster below:

Tickets go on sale on May 10. 3-day early bird tickets start at $275 and VIP passes start at $650. More information about the tickets and lineup can be found here.
