In what is sure to be a feather in the cap for the promoting moguls over at Goldenvoice, the lineup for the first ever Panorama Music, Art, and Technology festival was announced today–and it features an eclectic bunch to say the least. First and foremost the festival, which will take place July 22-24 at Randall’s Island, New York, has brought about the return of Arcade Fire to the states and is their first known scheduled U.S. date of 2016. Joining the Canadian troupe as headliners on the bill are Kendrick Lamar and the much anticipated reunion of LCD Soundsystem–both of whom are no strangers to big headlining slots.
Other performers will include Grammy winners the Alabama Shakes, dynamic electronica duo Major Lazer, the feisty R&B of FKA Twigs, and The National’s arena-sized dirges. Sufjan Stevens, Sia, ASAP Rocky, Run the Jewels, Grace Potter, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Silversun Pickups, Schoolboy Q, Broken Social Scene, and many more will also perform at the three day festival.
Panorama, which will be held on the same island that the Governorns Ball Music and Arts festival takes place at and is the second event Goldenvoice is managing on the East Coast (Firefly being the other). The Verge will also be teaming with the festival to create an interactive installation know as the Future Lab, which will experimentally combine music and new technologies in innovative ways.
Passes to Panorama go on sale this Friday, March 4th on Panorama’s website. General admission for all three days starts at $369, and VIP weekend packages are available in addition to transportation and layaway options.
