Kendall Jenner at Coachella

All summer long, we heard whispers that Coachella would be coming to NYC, and guess what? The rumors are sort of true.

According to the latest reports, the company behind the beloved music and arts festival will launch its Panorama festival on Randall’s Island in NYC this July. From Billboard:

In an announcement, Panorama is being billed as “Three days of music, art, technology, and local food offerings.” The name is taken from the Panorama of the City of New York, a nearly 10,000–square-foot to-scale model of the city located in Queens Museum.

“We look forward to bringing Panorama to New York City and introducing a new festival that showcases today’s top music acts,” said Mark Shulman, Festival Producer at Goldenvoice, in a statement. “We’re committed to creating an event that will provide significant benefits to New York City with the level of experience and meticulous attention to detail for which Goldenvoice is known.”

The site continues:

The announcement follows a petition launched by the organizers behind the city’s Governors Ball festival that asked Mayor Bill de Blasio to reject a proposal for Panorama that had scheduled its dates for June at the same park. The concern was that Panorama would cannibalize Governors Ball’s ticket sales. 

Now, rather than two weeks after Governor’s Ball, Panorama will be held seven weeks later. 

We can say with a lot of certainty: the East Coast version of Coachella is going to be a movie. Be there or be square.
