Goldenvoice, the concert organizers best known for producing Coachella each year, has officially announced Panorama, a new music festival set to take over to Randall's Island Park in New York City this July.

The festival has been rumored for some time as something of an alternative to Governors Ball, launched in 2011 and also held at Randall's Island Park. Kanye West, The Strokes and the Killers will headline this year's Governors Ball, scheduled for June 3-5; Panorama will take place July 22-24, and no lineup has been announced yet.

"We look forward to bringing Panorama to New York City and introducing a new festival that showcases today’s top music acts,” says Goldenvoice Festival Producer Mark Shulman in a statement. “We’re committed to creating an event that will provide significant benefits to New York City with the level of experience and meticulous attention to detail for which Goldenvoice is known.”

Like Coachella, Panorama will include art installations and local food selections in addition to the music performances. Goldenvoice booked the reunions of Guns N' Roses and LCD Soundsystem for the 2016 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival.
