2017 Panorama Music Festival – Report

by Catherina Gioino


In just its second year of existence, the Panorama Music Festival did much to excite its fans and concert goers. Be it the countless musial artists and acts they lined up for the three-day event in New York City, or the various food, drink, and merch vendors and the interactive art exhibits, Panorama surely delivered.

Brought to us by GoldenVoice (think: Coachella), Panorama took over Randall’s Island in New York from July 28 to 30, offering an outdoor concert venue with such great talents such as Frank Ocean, MGMT, Tyler The Creator, Glass Animals, Spoon, MO, and more.

Last year’s first annual Panorama Music Festival blessed us with such musical acts like Kendrick Lamar, Arcade Fire, Schoolboy Q, Major Lazer, and more. And if this year sounds like a step-up from last, we can only imagine what next year will bring.

Ensuring the best concert experience for its guests, the Panorama Music Festival includes a completely artistical component that’s 100% interactive and has you wondering why other music festivals on Randall’s Island (not to name names) aren’t up to par. The Lab is the festival’s artistically immersive exhibit away from the crowd at Nine Inch Nails or Tame Impala.

Essentially, it’s a 360 degree dome, a la Disney’s Epcot, that brings a certain type of mindfulness to the hectic city scenes. Colors and lights don’t even begin to describe the lucid visual displays as a calming yet aspiring soundtrack is played in the background. Featuring all New York City artists, the Lab is just one of the many things that set Panorama aside from the standard music festival.

Can’t wait to find out more about the festival and hear news about next year’s event? Well then go check out Panorama’s website for some cool pictures of the event as well as any news from their social media accounts about future events… But we’ll have to wait another year to see what the Panorama Music Festival brings next.
