It seems like just yesterday The Verge was at Randall's Island in New York City for Panorama, talking to artists, catching shows, and applying sunscreen like we were getting paid for it. That's because it was just yesterday — the final day of the festival. The artists who played Friday and Saturday set the bar pretty high, but Sunday's performers lived up to the hype gracefully (or, in the case of Run the Jewels, like their only order of business was to fuck shit up).

Brooklyn's Flatbush Zombies played an early set, but it was rowdy enough to pass for an after-hours party. As the Sun went down, SZA mellowed the crowd's mood before A$AP Rocky and LCD Soundsystem brought it back up. The Verge's Sean O'Kane was in the pit capturing the festival till the last song of the night.

The Verge has partnered up with the Panorama music, art, and technology festival which is taking place in New York City this July. We’ll be talking to the artists playing the festival and shaping the future of music in the weeks leading up to the show.
