Panorama NYC has announced they’ll be taking a little hiatus this year and not hosting their music festival again in New York City during 2019.
They got this info out to Billboard late last week and confirmed what people had been suspecting with so late in the season with no announcement — that Panorama may be back some other time.
Read the full announcement 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.
NYC’ers can’t complain all that much, there’s still a wild dearth of options for their summer ahead, like Governors Ball.
