After a two-year hiatus, it’s been officially announced that Langerado Music Festival is back for 2011.
Its six-year run garnered a following that made it one of the biggest South Florida music festivals of its time, but lagging ticket sales in 2009 caused the event to be cancelled.
Many speculate the change of venue was to blame for the public’s loss of interest in the festival. The move from the rural Big Cypress Park to Bicentennial Park in the middle of Miami destroyed any possibility of camping. The new big-city location took the festival completely out of its element.
While the festival promises big name acts and will be produced by C3, the organization responsible for the Austin City Limits Festival and Lolapalooza, it is as of yet uncertain whether the relocation to Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida will be enough draw back the audience previously lost. For one thing, nothing has been mentioned of the possibility of camping, though Markham Park does feature an 86-site campground.
For another, the lineup will not be released until June 1, though there are promises of a diversity ranging from electronica to indie rock and roots music.
For those willing to take a gamble, discounted early bird tickets are available starting today (3/9) at $75.
More information on this one as it is released.
