Langerado 09′ Canceled by ranchsauce

The Langerado Music Festival– hailed as one of the best festival’s of last 2008- decided that they needed to change the festival’s location from rural camping on the Big Cypress Seminole Reservation to an urban festival in Miami, Florida. The festival in Miami was supposed to last three days, with no camping options. The lineup released for this year’s event was met with a number of groans and strong disinterest by some the festival’s biggest fans.

Langerado 2008-a overall success-included big festival acts like Phil Lesh/311/Les
Claypool/Medeski,Martin,and Wood/STS9/The Wailers/Dark Star/The New Deal/Russo/Railroad Earth/Perpetual Groove/and the New Mastersounds
(ALL NOT RETURNING FOR 2009).

The dismal 2009 lineup included less heady headlining acts such as Dashboard Confessional, Death Cab for Cutie, Slightly Stoopid, Against Me!, Flogging Molly, Ryan Adams and a number of other acts that culminated into a lineup that included a little of this and a little of that, but no overall lineup that would rival the years upcoming festivals.

They are blaming the cancellation on the weakened economy, but my thoughts are that the whack ticket sales were due in part to a way too “all over the place” lineup and the new Miami concept. Maybe they will right the Langerado ship for next year, but for 2009 good riddance.

Promoter Ethan Schwartz released this explaination:

“Langerado has always put the fan experience first. Unfortunately, during these difficult economic times, and facing a first year in a new venue, it’s 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.”

That’s what those sellouts get for blowing up a good thing. Big Cypress was the shiiittt last year. Karma is a bitch.
