The festival is set for Oct. 8-9 at Markham Park in Sunrise, Fla. This year’s edition of Langerado marks the first time the event will have been held since 2008. After debuting in 2003, the Florida festival was canceled in 2009 because of slow ticket sales. The event was not held in 2010.
Langerado 2011 is being produced by C3 Presents in conjunction with Boros Entertainment. C3 produces Austin City Limits Music Festival and Lollapalooza.
“Much like our other festivals, we want Langerado to be an experience, not just a concert,” says C3 partner Charlie Jones. “The environment and the community are critical to that experience, so it’s important to us to create an event that the fans and city will embrace.”
The official lineup will be announced June 1. According to the festival website, this year’s diverse lineup will feature artists “from indie rock to electronica to modern roots.”
The 2008 lineup included Beastie Boys, R.E.M., Phil Lesh & Friends, Les Claypool, Thievery Corporation, Ben Folds, Ani DiFranco and 311.
A limited number of early bird two-day passes went on sale at 11 a.m. EST for $75. Now that those passes have sold out the next chance to get tickets coincides with the lineup announcement on June 1. Advanced two-day passes will be priced at $150.
Two-day passes will later increase in price to $180.
