2009 Festival cull: Langerado

Miami's Langerado Festival is cancelled, just five days after adding Modest Mouse and Deerhunter to the line-up.

There's an explanation:

“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.”

The festival was due at the start of next month; the suspicion has to be that it won't be the last festival to drop off the radar this year.
