Panorama Kicks Off Today With Music and Vendors

by | Jul 28, 2017 | Culture, Music

One of the summer’s most eclectic and varied festival lineups is coming to New York City this weekend. Festival gates are swinging open today at Randall’s Island Park.

Back for its second year, Panorama Music Festival kicks off today with music, attractions, food and drink.

Some passes still remain for the festival and can be purchased here.

Solange and Frank Ocean are headlining today’s lineup with performances at 8 p.m. and 9:35 p.m., respectively. But the two megastars aren’t the only noteworthy aspects of the weekend’s festivities. Hosts of indie rockers, up-and-coming rappers and DJs, cult electronic groups and singer-songwriters will be taking over the four stages – the Panorama, Pavilion, Parlor and Point – over the next three days.

Other headlining artists include Tame Impala, Nine Inch Nails and A Tribe Called Quest. Glass Animals, Spoon, Future Islands and Tyler, The Creator are among other noteworthy acts throughout the festival. For a complete lineup and set times, visit panorama’s website.

If those names don’t mean anything to you, or if you’re just in it for Solange’s sure-to-slay set, there’s still more to Panorama, too. Even if you’re gung-ho for the music, you should still make an effort to get to the festival early. Don’t miss out on all your pass has to offer.

Several New York City favorites make up a food lineup that’s almost as impressive as the artist lineup. With vendors like Roberta’s, 2nd City, Ice & Vice, Salvation Taco and Eggloo serving up their best, you could find one of your NYC favorites inside Panorama gates.

Hungry for more? Panorama boasts a slew of other attractions. Record store Rough Trade will have a special Panorama pop-up store, Macy’s is hosting a pool party, and HP is sponsoring an interactive art lounge. Some of your other favorite brands are involved too: Bud Light, Sephora, Califia and Deep Eddy Vodka will all be on site.

Food, entertainment and great music? Check, check and check. Get to the festival early for the full experience, and check out the Panorama website for more information including the lineup, travel tips and set times.
