It’s the time of the year when music fans begin planning their summer festival season. The lineup for the 2018 Panorama Music Festival was just announced and indie music fans everywhere are talking about this year’s eclectic mix of acts. Organized by Goldenvoice, the same organizers of Coachella, this festival has made a name for itself as one of the premier music festivals on the East Coast.
The three headliners of this year’s festival feature a varied mix of artists. Kicking off the festival as Friday’s headliner is The Weeknd. Hailing from Canada, The Weknd hit the U.S. scene in 2015 with the hit “Can’t Feel My Face”, which was quickly followed up with fan-favorite “The Hills”. Saturday’s headliner choice goes off script from the usual indie-dominated focus with Miss Janet Jackson. The iconic pop singer and dancer has been a prominent figure in the music industry for over 30 years. Panorama returns to the Indie music roots with The Killers concluding the show as Sunday’s headliner.
Other popular acts featured in the 2018 Panorama Music Festival include:
• Father John Misty
• Fleet Foxes
• War on Drugs
• St. Vincent
• The xx
