Florida’s Langerado Music Festival was set to return from a two-year hiatus this October. But now, the festival’s website reveals that those plans have been scrapped. Full ticket refunds are now available at the point of purchase.
For six years, Langerado ruled the South Florida festival scene with lineups topped by the likes of R.E.M., My Morning Jacket, Widespread Panic, and more. But in a move widely criticized by many, the festival announced plans to move to Miami in 2009; ultimately, a lackluster lineup and poor ticket sales led to its cancellation and an indefinite hiatus.
Earlier this year, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits promoters C3 Presents partnered with Boros Entertainment to reboot the festival. Set for October 8-9 at Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida, Langerado 2011 was to feature headliners Death Cab for Cutie and The Trey Anastasio Band, along with Ben Harper, Ween, Thievery Corporation, and Arctic Monkeys.
There was no reason given for the festival’s latest cancellation.
