Panorama Cancels Friday Evening Performances At 2018 Festival Due To Severe Weather


Panorama, a three-day music festival, began on Friday at Randall’s Island Park off Manhattan in New York City. Organizers Goldenvoice evacuated the grounds yesterday when severe weather rolled through. All performances were cancelled after the evacuation order at approximately 5 p.m. The festival is scheduled resumed today and runs through Sunday.

“We regret having to cancel the second half of Friday’s performances, but our first priority is always the safety of our fans, artists and staff. After consultation with NYC officials, we agreed with the decision to evacuate,” reads a note from the festival’s organizers.

Friday Refunds will be issued. Here’s more details with a FAQ available on Panorama’s website:
