It appears the 2009 Langerado Music Festival has fallen victim to the sluggish economy.
The seventh annual event, which was slated to take place March 6-8 in Miami’s Bicentennial Park, has been canceled.
Festival co-promoter Ethan Schwartz said slow ticket sales presented organizers with a difficult choice.
“Langerado has always put the fan experience first,” Schwartz explained. “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.”
All tickets purchased will be refunded in the next 5-7 business days. Orders will be refunded in full, minus order processing fees. Shipping fees will also be credited for those who did not select free shipping.
Bands previously scheduled to play Langerado included Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, Slightly Stoopid, Snoop Dogg and The Pogues.
