Sure Coachella, Pitchfork, SXSW, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza have all the buzz on the music festival circuit (i.e. they sell out really quicklly) but Langerado is trying to become the buzzed about first big festival of the year. Things kick off March 9-11. It’s now going on it’s five year and this years concert features such big names as Widespread Panic, moe., Assembly of Dust and Trey Anastasio for all you hippie kids out there. And for all you indie rock kids there’s plenty to listen to including The Hold Steady, Band of Horses, The New Pornographers, MMJ, Girl Talk and Rodgrigo y Gabriela.
Not too shabby, especially cause that’s just scratching the surface. General admission tickets are still available but grab’em now cause on March 1, the prices will be raised to $145. South Florida is pretty awesome this time of year. It’s nice and warm without being disgustingly muggy. Much better than the weather for Coachella in April.
As an added bonus they’ll also have tickets onsale for a couple of latenight club shows featuring several of the acts. Has anyone gone to Langerado in years past and has more of an idea of what’s in store for people? This sounds like it could make for a good festival? They’ve got a good mix of acts and it’s in a nice location. But everyone knows it’s the music that ultimately sells these things.
