New York City’s Panorama Festival can’t seem to catch a break. The AEG and Goldenvoice-backed festival was forced to evacuate its first festival day in 2018 due to inclement weather, which was received with widespread criticism and backlash from fans. Now, as ticket announcements and lineup releases would have been on the horizon for this year’s edition of Panorama, the festival’s organizers have announced that the event will be going on a “hiatus” as the team looks to find the festival a new home. The festival was held on Randall’s Island during its first three years, but NYC Parks denied a permit for the festival for its 2019 iteration. The organizers are now actively seeking a permanent home for Panorama in Flushing Meadows, New York.

AEG released an official announcement about the festival’s hiatus in 2019, stating, “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 three years of fantastic performances.” In past years, Kendrick Lamar, Tame Impala, Frank Ocean, and LCD Soundsystem have headlined Panorama Festival.
