well im horribly, horribly disappointed.
Langerado is moving to the magic city! Join us Friday March 6, Saturday March 7 and Sunday March 8 at Bicentennial Park, nestled alongside Biscayne Bay in the heart of downtown Miami. The 7th annual Langerado will feature 3 full days of live music on multiple stages spread throughout Bicentennial Park's 30 acres of lush tropical foliage. Late night shows will take place at multiple venues throughout Miami, including downtown, the Design District and world famous South Beach.
Sign up for our email list at www.langerado.com to be the first to find out the most exciting Langerado lineup to date in early November! Can’t wait to see all of you in sunny Miami next March for Langerado 2009!
this is where Ultra is held FYI. I am so sad that it wont be at Big Cypress once again. I doubt I'll be there this year...this sucks.

Well, that sucks. I went to Ultra last March in Bicentennial Park and LOVED it.
Bicentennial Park is actually a really nice venue. Aside from my finger in the porto-door fiasco, everything was run very smoothly and there was plenty of space and shade. Very little sound bleed either. If you do want to go to 'Rado in Miami, Bicentennial Park is pretty nice.
However, I was looking forward to enjoying Langerado and Ultra this year...but I just can't make the trip to Miami twice.

Here's the official press release that I got today:
September 17, 2008 For Immediate Release LANGERADO MUSIC FESTIVAL MOVES TO MIAMI, FLORIDA 7TH ANNUAL EVENT TAKES PLACE MARCH 6-8, 2009 AT BICENTENNIAL PARK
Miami, Florida - For 2009, the Langerado Music Festival moves to one of Miami's most scenic spots - Bicentennial Park on Biscayne Bay. It's a new home for the seventh annual event, which will take place March 6-8, 2009; Langerado has enjoyed impressive success and growth in Broward County since 2002. The move to downtown Miami promises to make Langerado a City Festival that the Magic City can truly call its own.
"The City of Miami is utterly delighted to welcome the Langerado Music Festival for its inaugural show in downtown Miami's Bicentennial Park. The festival's move to a more urban environment heralds an important milestone in its growth; it will now be a more accessible community-oriented event. With a myriad of artists representing a great many musical genres, Langerado's lineup will be as diverse as Miami's population, and we are thrilled that Langerado has chosen Miami as its home," said Robert Parente, Director of Film and Cultural Affairs for Miami's Mayor's Office.
The 7th annual Langerado Music Festival will host a variety of international headliners and hot up-and-comers on multiple stages throughout the weekend. Langerado's past performers include R.E.M., Beastie Boys, The Black Crowes, My Morning Jacket, Matisyahu, Wilco, Ben Harper, the Flaming Lips, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Thievery Corporation, Girl Talk, Ozomatli, 311, Ani DiFranco and many, many others.
In addition to world class music, Langerado will offer local arts and crafts, delicious food vendors, and a variety of festival activities for the whole family - all on-site at Bicentennial Park's 30 acres of waterfront. Located in the heart of one of the United States' most cultural cities, just minutes from Downtown Miami and Miami's South Beach, visitors can enjoy easy access to Miami's many hotels, international restaurants and sizzling nightlife. Taking advantage of Miami's after-hours scene, Langerado will host official late night shows and parties at various local venues throughout Miami including world-famous South Beach, the Design District, Coconut Grove and beyond.
Initial artist lineup announcements and ticket information for Langerado 2009 - including VIP experiences, public transportation incentives and hotel/travel packages - will be announced in early November. Stay tuned to www.langerado.com for additional details as they become available.
For six years, the Langerado Music Festival has kicked off the United States' burgeoning festival season with a full weekend of music and art in South Florida. Recognized by such national media outlets as the New York Times, Rolling Stone and Billboard Magazine, Langerado has grown enormously since it's inaugural year; growing from 3,500 in attendance in 2003 at Fort Lauderdale Stadium, to nearly 25,000 per day in attendance at 2008's event at the Big Cypress Indian Reservation.
The Langerado Music Festival is produced by Mark Brown and Ethan Schwartz. Brown is the managing partner of Jam Cruise (www.jamcruise.com). Schwartz produces and promotes shows in the South Florida area. Together, the partners also produce the Caribbean Holidaze festival in Runaway Bay, Jamaica ( www.caribbeanholidaze.com).
If there's a big plus about this... It's put on by the same agency that did Rothbury.
They are usually sold seperate and pending on what it is could sell out quick. The year I went it was like that (The festival was at Markham Park and the late nights were at different venues across Ft. Lauderdale) The tickets vary in price from $20 to $40 plus they will probably offer a shuttle for like $50 bucks.
Unless you know people that you can stay with there or pack your hotel it can get really expensive.

Yup if its like Lolla it was about $200 for the fest + $20 to $30 for the after shows after all that you would almost be up to $280 once you added in ticketmaster. Next add in your hotel. Might as well just plan on coughing up a grand minimum if you fly.
and Porvida, maybe wouldnt Buffet close out the fest? A Hawaiian shirt and parrot riot to end the weekend?
Maybe. But my guess is Friday. They wanna stick with roots.
EDIT: The most expensive festival I have ever attended was Langerado 07'. Hands down. And come to think of it the late night shows were people that were playing the festival. Nothing exclusive. Except one band, Stanton Moore Trio. I can't wait to see how this one rolls out.

On the plus side of this, if the lineup does end up getting me there, I can envision my mornings spent warming up on the beautiful beach each day when I wake up
Nope, there's no beach on Biscayne Bay (at least not by Bicentennial Park). We stayed about 7-8 blocks from the park, and while we were on the bay and it was GORGEOUS, there was no beach I was disappointed.
Also, Ultra attracts about as many people as Langerado, so I'm sure the park can hold that many. Just, yeah, no camping for sure.
I wonder how this is going to affect WMC and Ultra, considering it's just 3 weeks afterward? The boyfriend and I are planning on going to WMC/Ultra again this year...
