When first introduced last year, Panorama Music Festival was marketed as being New York City’s answer to Coachella. We'll be honest, it's not quite there yet—it's only the festival’s second year after all—but it’s one to pay attention to nonetheless.
Artists like Frank Ocean, A Tribe Called Quest, MGMT, and Nine Inch Nails took to the stage this past weekend, making it one of the most diverse lineups of the year. In response, it also had some of the most diverse festival attendees, both in the makeup and style departments.
What do you wear to watch a brooding Frank Ocean? Tribe Called Quest’s last New York show? And a vibrant Tame Impala performance? Colorful sunglasses, fishnets, and definitely no flash tats or flower crowns. See some of the originality NYC's fashion mavens cooked up this go-around.
