2016 Panorama Festival Includes Kendrick Lamar, ASAP Rocky and Run The Jewels
As the calendar turns to March, festival season inches closer and closer and Panorama has announced the lineup for their three-day event. Taking place at Randall's Island in New York City from July 22-24, the in inaugural event will include acts such as Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Run the Jewels, ScHoolboy Q, Madlib, DJ Khaled, Kaytranada, Flatbush Zombies, SZA and more.
Along with the star-studded lineup, the festival will also include the Future Lab. The Lab is described as "an interactive, experiential installation that explores the possibilities of music and technology. Future Lab will showcase new technology in unconventional ways."
"The way we listen to and discover music changes with every passing month, while the experience of seeing live music has become more important than ever — not only for artists, but for fans and the cities that host them," says the festival's website. "The festival landscape is crowded, but Panorama promises to be a different, more forward-looking approach to the whole three-days-in-a-field-with-a-million-amazing-bands experience."
