NYC’s Panorama Festival unveils lineup
Already hailed as the “East Coast Coachella,” Panorama Festival is touching down on the summer festival circuit with a big splash. Having ruffled the feathers of other New York-based events, Goldenvoice’s NYC venture is the new kid on the block, promising a festival experience to which the West Coast is well-accustomed. Now, the inaugural festival has a lineup to back it up. While James Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem was named an early headliner, Kendrick Lamar and Arcade Fire have joined the ranks along with a stellar blend of talent from July 22-24.
Major Lazer, A$AP Rocky, and AlunaGeorge will each make their way onto Panorama’s introductory lineup, with further acts like Flosstradamus, RÜFÜS DU SOL, and Jai Wolf all slated to perform during the three-day weekend event. Bringing in a colorful cast of hip-hop’s leading talents, Schoolboy Q, Run The Jewels, and Anderson .Paak will balance out the eclectic lineup as Panorama readies for its 2016 edition, likely the first of many more to come.
Passes for Panorama go on sale Friday, March 4, at 12pm EST on the festival’s official website.
