Panorama Fest, in its second year at New York’s Randall’s Island, already has a lot in its favor. The festival is the creation of the folks behind Coachella, has a virtual reality museum that’s been called the “most elaborate concert-business plunge into VR to date,” a food vendor lineup that rivals any culinary fest (Roberta’s, Salvation Tacos, and Eggloo among others)—and—wait for it—a Sephora tent. The lineup, you’ll be glad to know, is just as delicious and innovative as all of these things.
The acts on Panorama’s lineup reveal summer music festival 2.0. It’s a lineup done exquisitely, with an eye toward unclassified scenes not always reflected in mainstream festivals. Detroit house music icons like Theo Parrish are alongside Cashmere Cat, the pop music producer weirdo extraordinaire who’s worked with Kanye West, Selena Gomez, and Ariana Grande. Whether you feeling meditative on the green during Huerco S. or busting a move in your Classic Leathers to Mister Saturday Night, this is a lineup with nary an artist you will regret seeing. That being said, these 10 undefinable acts will be especially good to you.
