Langerado Music Festival cancelled (again!)

Langerado

Florida’s Langerado Music Festival, which was cancelled in 2009, tried to do it again this year. No such luck!

Once again, Langerado is gone.

An attempt to revive the South Florida music festival ended up failing, as the concert, scheduled for Oct. 8-9 at Davie’s Markham Park, was canceled by promoters Boros Entertainment. It’s the second time that Langerado has been canceled in the last three years — in 2009, the show was canceled due to economic reasons after being slated for Miami’s Bicentennial Park.

Tickets were initially selling for $150 in advance, $180 at the gate, although The Miami Herald reports they were dipping in price to as low as $75.

The lineup included Death Cab For Cutie, Arctic Monkeys, Trey Anastasio, Ben Harper and Ween. The Herald reports that the lineup had been getting criticized on Facebook since it was announced back in June.

On Twitter, Death Cab lead singer Ben Gibbard, whose band was also part of the canceled 2009 festival, expressed his apologies to fans: “Sorry to all who were looking forward to seeing us at Langerado. Very upset that we’ve had to say this twice in the last 5 years.” [PBPost]

Death Cab for Cutie, Trey Anastasio Band, Ben Harper, Ween, Thievery Corporation, Arctic Monkeys, G. Love & Special Sauce, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Wolfgang Gartner, Etienne De Crecy – Live Show, Ghostland Observatory, Das Racist, Portugal. The Man, Friendly Fires, Childish Gambino, Smith Westerns, Super Mash Bros., Savoy, Mates of State and The Whigs were all on the bill of the cancelled Florida fest.
