Yesterday it was announced that the team behind Coachella, the wildly popular California desert music fest, was eyeing Flushing Meadows Corona Park for a possible NYC outpost as early as next year. Tentatively called Panorama (after the actual panorama of the city from the 1964 World’s Fair in the Queens Museum), the plans are drawing concern from other local music events, most notably Governors Ball, the city’s only three-day music fest, which brought in $40 million in benefits for the city in 2014. Panorama would take place just two weeks after Governors Ball, possibly taking away its performers, as well as city revenue. Others are simply concerned about the crowds and debauchery, but we want to know your thoughts.
