Coachella organizers announce Panorama music festival in New York City
Coachella East? Goldenvoice hopes so. The concert organizers and producers behind the California music festival announced Panorama, a music festival to take place July 22 to 24 in New York City’s Randall’s Island Park.
“We look forward to bringing Panorama to New York City and introducing a new festival that showcases today’s top music acts,” said Goldenvoice Festival Producer Mark Shulman in a statement. “We’re committed to creating an event that will provide significant benefits to New York City with the level of experience and meticulous attention to detail for which Goldenvoice is known.”
The inaugural festival vows to feature premier musical performances, art installations, and highlight the city’s food scene. The name of the festival references the Panorama of the City of New York, a 10,000 square-foot to-scale model of the city, hosted at the Queens Museum.
Panorama will be the second major music festival in NYC. Governors Ball comes back for its sixth year in the beginning of June. Kanye West, The Killers, and The Strokes are headlining.
