The annual Panorama Music Festival has quickly become one of the biggest festivals in the United States despite being only a few years old. The festival debuted in 2016 with a lineup headlined by Arcade Fire, Kendrick Lamar and LCD Soundsystem. Fans of the popular festival no longer have to speculate about this year’s lineup because it was just announced. The huge outdoor concert will take place on New York City’s Randall Island for three days beginning on Friday, July 27.
The 2018 edition of the Panorama Music Festival will be headlined by The Weeknd, Janet Jackson and The Killers. Some of the other top acts on the bill are Father John Misty, St. Vincent, The XX, David Byrne, Fleet Foxes, The War on Drugs, Japanese Breakfast, Dua Lipa and SZA. The headliners may be somewhat of a step down from the first two years, but the mixture of top indie rock and hip hop acts on the rest of the lineup will surely appease a lot of music fans.
If you like the lineup, then you will not have to wait long to grab tickets. They go on sale at 10:00 AM EST on Friday, February 2. General admission tickets can be purchased for one, two or all three days of the event. A one-day ticket will cost $105 after all taxes and fees are included. If you want to get the full festival experience, then it will set you back $275. The daily lineup has already been released, so you can start planning your trip to New York right now. Make sure to add a ferry shuttle pass to your ticket purchase. The festival takes place on an island, and the ferry will be the only way to get to Panorama every day.
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:
