Dua Lipa was set to take the stage shortly after the announcement at 5 p.m. ET.
New York City’s Panorama festival has called it quits on day one of the festival due to severe weather. Organizers for the three-day festival took to the main stage shortly before pop star Dua Lipa’s set at 5 p.m. ET to inform attendees they would be shutting down for the day.
Festival-goers have been asked to evacuate the site at Randall’s Island Park in New York. According to Billboard staffers on site, crowds calmly filed out of the gates as thunder was heard over the site.
“We are evacuating the island due to severe weather,” the Panorama Fest account tweeted. “Please exit the way you entered. Ferries and shuttles are running and the pedestrian bridge is open. Panorama has been cancelled for today and we will see you tomorrow.”
