Panorama Festival evacuated as Father John Misty, the Weeknd and more forced to cancel

Extreme weather conditions for the annual Panorama music festival in New York City to cancel its first day.

The festival decided to send a push notification to ticketholders, explaining: “We are evacuating due to severe weather. Please exit the way you entered.

“Panorama has been cancelled today and will re-open tomorrow,” it added.

The cancellation meant that sets from the likes of the War on Drugs, Father John Misty, Migos, Dua Lipa, the Weeknd, Yaeji and plenty more have been cancelled.

This, of course, is not the first time the event has suffered major issues. Last year, Panorama was forced to cancel selected sets after a stage floor collapsed.
