Coachella Considering NYC

Goldenvoice could be bringing a Coachella-style festival to New York City.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, city officials have been in talks with the promoter about hosting a festival at Flushing Meadows Corona Park in the borough of Queens.

Trouble is, the fest, which is reportedly being called Panorama, may take place two weeks after Governors Ball in June, which could create some serious competition for headliners.

Tom Russell of Founders Entertainment, which produces Governors Ball, told the paper the timing of the proposed fest would “threaten our ability as a small business to continue putting on the kind of event that has showcased the best artists, created hundreds of local jobs and put millions of dollars back into the city’s economy.”

Queens officials said it could be too soon to consider Panorama a done deal, however.

The park has apparently never been used by a company for a charged-admission event.

“While we encourage public events of any scale that enhance our borough, this proposal appears to raise significant concerns, especially the precedent it would potentially set,” Queens Borough President Melinda Katz told the Daily News.

Both Russell and a spokeswoman for Goldenvoice did not respond to requests for comment at press time.
