Panorama Music Festival Will Not Take Place In 2019
After a three-year run, the AEG and Goldenvoice have announced that the Panorama Music Festival will not be returning in 2019. The music festival has taken place on New York City’s Randalls Island and featured the likes of Arcade Fire, The National, Tame Impala, Nine Inch Nails and The War On Drug.
According to Billboard, AEG is hoping to bring Panorama back in 2020 at their originally envisioned site, Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens. The festival has experienced a handful of setbacks in its brief history including having to cancel its part of its first day last year because of severe weather.
Read the official statement issued by AEG below:
Panorama will be taking a hiatus in 2019 while we continue discussions with NYC Parks to bring the festival to Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, where it was originally envisioned.
We had a fantastic experience with Paul Simon this past September at Flushing Meadows and look forward to returning in the future.
We were disappointed in NYC Parks denial of our permit application despite the long term benefits this event would deliver to the community and the park.
While we have enjoyed our time on Randall’s Island and its great facilities, we feel that we have achieved all that we can at this site. We look forward to continued conversations with City Parks to explore making the Flushing Meadows site a reality. Until then, we thank the fans and artists who supported the event for the last 3 years of fantastic performances.
