Panorama Festival, the beats-and-eats fest on Randall’s Island that has previously been headlined by Nine Inch Nails and LCD Soundsystem, has announced its 2018 lineup. Get ready to go on an escapade, kids, because the Saturday headliner is, uh, Janet Jackson.
On the more predictable front, The Weeknd will headline on Friday, July 27, and The Killers will close things out on Sunday. So it should be a Killer Weeknd? Har har.
Also of note: David Byrne will play the Sunday show, performing songs off his forthcoming album American Utopia. Gucci Mane is in the mix. And there are a host of acts that made the Village Voice‘s recently released Pazz & Jop Music Critics Poll of the year’s best albums, including Byrne collaborator St. Vincent, New York cover girl Cardi B, SZA, The War On Drugs, The xx, Fleet Foxes, and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
As with previous years, there’ll be a variety of eats, a dome theater, interactive digital art, and an outdoor dance club equipped with a Funktion 1 sound system pumping out house, techno, and the like.
General admission tickets will be priced at $99, $185 for 2 days and $250 for 3 days, and are $20 off if you purchase them between Feb. 2 at 10am and Feb. 3 at noon; regular pricing begins Sunday, Feb. 4 at midnight.
