Panorama Music Festival—a three-day romp on Randalls Island—kicked off this afternoon, but was forced to shut down for the evening shortly before 5pm due to severe weather. Folks have been asked to evacuate the park and take shelter. The festival is expected to resume tomorrow.
For many Friday attendees, this is a major bummer as great acts like Father John Misty, Dua Lipa, The War on Drugs and The Weekend were expected to take the stage. Yeah, storms may be cool (visually) but they can really suck sometimes. We wonder if The Weekend could feel it coming...
