It's that time of year when all the music festivals announce their big 2019 lineups! However, one has announced they won't be coming back this year.
Panorama Music Festival, which has taken place the past few years in Randall's Island, says they're not coming back this year...however there are plans in the future in a different location.
Here's the company's full statement:
“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.”
That's a bummer! Hopefully they'll come back stronger than ever next year!
