Get ready, festival fans, because the names behind Coachella could be bringing a similar festival to the East Coast. 

According to Daily News sources, the company that puts on Coachella, called AEG Live, has been scouting Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens as a possible music festival location. The festival, which is rumored to take place next June, would be called "Panorama." 

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was first held on Oct. 9, 1999, in Indio, California. Over the years, the Southern California festival's attendance grew so much that it started offering two weekends of the festival in 2012. Celebrities are often spotted at Coachella, which has been dubbed a "celebrity spring break." 

And while many would welcome a major Coachella-inspired music festival on the East Coast (hello, revenue), certain people are unhappy with the rumors. Specifically, the people behind Governors Ball, a New York music festival first held in 2011 that would take place right around the rumored time of "Panorama." 

"New York City is big enough for two music festivals, but the proposed timing of this sets up an unnecessary rivalry," said Tom Russell, who works with Governors Ball, in an interview with Gothamist. "We're a small, local promoter up against a big corporate machine. We know how those fights typically work out." 

Guess we'll just have to wait and see how this all plays out.
