It looks like Coachella is moving forward with plans to expand to New York City.

Following initial news in October, festival producers Goldenvoice has formally announced an NYC festival called Panorama, which will take place at Randall's Island Park from July 22-24, reports Billboard.

The announcement bills Panorama as "Three days of music, art, technology, and local food offerings."

"We look forward to bringing Panorama to New York City and introducing a new festival that showcases today's top music acts," said Mark Shulman, Festival Producer at Goldenvoice, 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."

The announcement follows a petition launched by the organizers behind NYC's Governors Ball festival to reject a proposal for Panorama that had scheduled its dates for June at the same park. The concern was that Panorama would cannibalize Governors Ball's ticket sales.

Now, instead of two weeks after Governor's Ball, Panorama will be held seven weeks later.

It's unclear when tickets will go on sale.
