PANORAMA FRIDAY RECAP: Off to a Strong Start
    • MONDAY, JULY 25, 2016

    • Posted by: Kirsten Spruch

    The first ever Panorama Music Festival took place last weekend at Randall's Island in New York. Part of me didn't want to like it, since I've been a Governors Ball girl for the last three years and it'd be going against my morals, but shit -- it was possibly my favorite festival of the summer so far. Starting off strong on Friday, everything ran smoothly. Transportation was fast, the bathrooms were fancy, and the musical acts were pure A-list quality. Goldenvoice clearly knew what they were doing and it showed. Here are some of the acts we were fortunate to catch.

    Alabama Shakes

    Well, I can cross that off my bucket list now. Alabama Shakes were insane. Brittany Howard's soulful voice soared throughout the entire field and ripped on the guitar like the bad ass that she is. And I'm pretty sure everyone got chills with the rock/blues band started playing "Gimme All Your Love."

    Arcade Fire

    Another one to cross off the bucket list. Arcade Fire covered almost all of Reflektor in addition to everything else in their discography, but surprisingly enough, their outro was probably the best part of the entire show. After their last song, they dove into the crowd, transformed into a marching band, and paid tribute to David Bowie for a solid 45 minutes. See a short clip below.

    Broken Social Scene

    Broken Social Scene put on an incredible, high energy show. The stage was not only physically full (they have a lot of band members!) but it was also emotionally full of happiness and positivity. Corny, but oh so true.

    Major Lazer

    Okay, I was not expecting to enjoy Major Lazer as much as I did. I've always liked their single, "Lean On," but I've never been heavily into the dance music genre other than that. However, after watching the talented dancers do their thing and Diplo throw ~a billion free t-shirts into the crowd, I was totally won over.

    Silversun Pickups

    The LA-based alt-rock band rocked so hard. Everyone in the band looked so happy to be there, which I loved.
