You know 2017 has officially arrived when festival lineups continue to drop like beats at an EDM event and another week begins with another fantastic festival lineup announcement. On Monday it was Panorama Music Festival, which will feature headlining sets from Frank Ocean, Solange, Tame Impala, Nine Inch Nails, Alt-J, and Queens natives A Tribe Called Quest.
Goldenvoice's east coast Coachella announced back on December 1 that it would be returning to Randall’s Island Park for its second year on July 28-30 this year, but with no prior teases or follow up announcements, the lineup announcement came as a surprise first thing on Monday morning. Other notable artists appearing on the 2017 Panorama poster include Spoon, MGMT, Belle & Sebastian, Vince Staples, Future Islands, Justice, Glass Animals, and Angel Olsen.
Local New Yorkers, A Tribe Called Quest, will be making their first real concert performance in a few years after appearing on SNL in November following their first album release since 1998 with We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service. Frank Ocean will also be making his big apple return, playing New York City for the first time since September 2012.
Nine Inch Nails also hinted at more dates to come in 2017 with a hinting post on their Facebook shortly before the lineup announcement on Monday morning as well. Trent Reznor and company will be making their own first appearance back in the New York metro area since August 2014 following the last minute 2016 EP release of Not the Actual Events on December 23.
General public on-sale for 2017 passes will begin at 10a EST on January 13. For more information on Panorama Music Festival, click here.
