Having a music festival just days after New York Fashion Week is a bold move. People are tired! The Meadows rose to the challenge, though, and succeeded tenfold. Credit it for being one of the most accessible festivals around, credit the robust and musically diverse lineup, credit the fact that it's just a damn good festival—the second annual Meadows Festival truly delivered a special experience, especially when it came to street style.
The crowd this past weekend was vibrant and excited, showcasing the best of what New York City has to offer when it comes to festival style and attitude. For three days, the parking lot around Citi Field became a playground for characters and individuality. Hell, it wasn't just a playground, it was a celebration. From Circa Waves' first songs to the final chord the Red Hot Chili Peppers played Sunday night, the Meadows evaded the sophomore slump with ease. See for yourself in our exclusive gallery, below.
