Maybe the first victim of our ailing economy, the 2009 Langerado Music Festival has been cancelled, due to sluggish ticket sales.
Langerado co-promoter Ethan Schwartz puts it thus: "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."
Bummer. Among the bands scheduled to play Langerado this year were Death Cab for Cutie, Thievery Corporation, Snoop Dogg, Broken Social Scene, Deerhunter, Modest Mouse, and Public Enemy.
