Founders Entertainment fights ‘East Coast Coachella’ with another festival of their own
Founders Entertainment, the organization that fuels New York-based Governors Ball, has applied to host a second festival in Flushing Meadows Corona Park from September 30-October 2, 2016. The decision arrives shortly after AEG Live, the company behind Coachella, applied to hold a three-day festival called Panorama two weeks after next year’s Governors Ball. Despite Founders Entertainment’s petition against Panorama, claiming that it would severely hurt Governors Ball’s attendance, the company has instead opted to fight fire with fire.
Founders Entertainment now marks the third company to express interest in holding a festival at Corona Park – tailgating AEG Live and Madison Square Garden, which hopes to put on a music and arts festival from June 24-June 26, 2016.
