Happy Humpday Earthlings,

Now that the Music & Technology industries are catching up on “real life” (and a few nights sleep) after Austin’s 2016 SXSW mega-success), we can focus our attention on the first installment of Panorama NYC!  The Music, Art & Technology Festival should shape up as a miniature east coast version of Austin Texas’ South by Southwest.  SXSW is the nation’s largest and leading Music, Film & Interactive Technology festival.  The 30- year old “Mothership of Multimedia Festivals” kicks off with 5 days of SXSWi (Interactive Technology & Film ) followed by 5 days of the original SXSW  music showcases  and performances throughout the city.  Panorama is Goldenvoice‘s (Coachella, Stagecoach, Firefly) entry into the crossover festival forum.  The inaugural event will be held July 22nd-24th at NYC’s Randall’s Island Park (astonishingly at the same location as Governor’s Ball).

The brand new festival’s music lineup is pretty impressive, considering it falls within a month of 3 other major summer music fests all concentrated within a 200 mile radius of it’s New York City location. Arcade Fire & Kendrick Lamar are the main headliners for Friday and Saturday nights. Sunday will provide a special headlining appearance by LCD Soundsystem,‘s reunion this summer (touring and music release) after their 2011 “farewell tour”.  James Murphy and company’s mezmorizing stage show will definitely bring a proper closing to the festival.   For Native New Yorkers, the convenience of it’s location provides some alternatives transportation methods such as Ferry and Shuttle services.  Brooklyn & Lower Manhattan Hipsters have the option of  a shuttle service.  Even more important and convenient for consumers and fans, Panorama will provide both Day Passes and Full Weekend/VIP passes.  Be sure to keep this on your calendar as you decide where your summer music festival dollars will be spent, as there’s now loads of options on the East Coast for Summer 2016! #panorama #switchflipcertified #panorama2016 #panoramanyc #eastcoastfestivals  #summerfestivals #musicanadtechfestivals #switcfhlipmedia #randallsislandpark #kendricklamar #lcdsoundsystem #arcadefire #bloodorange
