CORONA — The Meadows Festival will return this September for a multi-day music fest featuring Jay Z, Gorillaz and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as headliners.

Tickets for the Sept. 15-17 festical, which will be held in a parking lot next to Citi Field, will go on sale May 10 at noon, according to organizers.

The multi-stage show will also include performances by Nas, Weezer, Run the Jewels, M.I.A, Erykah Badu, Ghostface Killah and more. 

The festival, organized by Founders Entertainment and Live Nation, will also bring back a food court with some of the borough's most beloved restaurant.

Last year's inaugural festival included performances from The Weeknd, Chance the Rapper and Kanye West, who cut his Sunday evening performance short after wife Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris.

Community members opposed last year's event since it coincided with the popular Maker Faire, limiting parking for thousands of visitors to the science festival at New York Hall of Science. This year's event, though, will not overlap with the Maker Faire.
