This year’s edition of the Langerado Music Festival, scheduled to take place between March 6 and 8, 2009 in Miami, Florida, has been cancelled. Promoters cite “a dismal economy” and “sluggish ticket sales” as factors for the decision. Per promoter Ethan Schwartz:
Langerado has always put the fan experience first. Unfortunately, during these difficult economic times, and facing a first year in a new venue, its become apparent that we cannot execute a production that lives up to the high standards of our past events. Putting Langerado on hold was the toughest decision we have ever had to make. We are very grateful for the support of the greater-Miami community and the music community during this difficult time.
All tickets will be refunded with 5-7 business days. For information on ticket refunds please contact Music Today
Langerado marks the second major Florida based music festival to be cancelled. The Bang Music Festival scrapped its 2007 plans and has yet to return. No word on whether the same will hold true for Langerado.
