Today, Panorama kicked-off the first day of its mega-inaugural year. The “modern day World’s Fair” presented by Goldenvoice, offers a Coachella-East like flavor with music performances, technology-inspired art installations and food – what else do you want!.
The day’s performances included an explosive headlining set from Arcade Fire with a guest appearance by Preservation Hall Jazz Band who finished the set with a singalong on-foot through the crowd, DJ Khaled who brought out fellow superstars T.I., Fat Joe, and Remy Ma, Alabama Shakes, Major Lazer, FKA Twigs, and many more.
The Technology – Inspired Art piece was a Panorama debut of The Lab which features works that combine technology, artistry and design, created exclusively by New York-based artists. The Lab is presented by the Verge, powered by HP Inc., and curated by META.is. Artists include FutureWife, Dave & Gabe, Gabriel Pulecio, Mountain Gods, Red Paper Heart, Zachary Lieberman, Emilie Baltz, Philip Sierzega, and Antfood.
