Panorama Festival, Day 3 at Randall's Island

Panorama was a unique music festival experience. In addition to two live music stages and a smaller stage for electronic or dj sets, the area in between the stages included several air-conditioned spaces featuring high-tech music-based installations. The Lab was a playground of seven interactive art, music and technology installations and a massive 360ยบ planetarium-styled theater. Despacio featured a sound system designed by James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem, DFA) and David and Stephen Dewaele (Soulwax/2manydjs) with recording engineer John Klett, delivering nearly 50,000 watts of power through seven stacks of customized McIntosh amplifiers each standing 11 feet tall. More impressively, the area between the stages featured many upscale food kiosks, cooling stations and elegant air-conditioned bathroom trucks rather than portable toilets.
