After a great day one and day two in Queens at the 2nd edition of The Meadows Festival, we returned Sunday for the third and final day of the festival.

This day was the rock heavy day of the festival, right in our wheelhouse. Kicking off the day for us was a set from CRX, the side project of Nick Valensi of The Strokes.
