Coincide your spring break with a great music festival in the warm state of Florida. The Langerado Music Festival has taken place for the last 3 years and the fourth looks like it is going to be the best yet. The festival takes place in Markham Park, a large 666-acre park bordering the Everglades Conservation Area, in Sunrise, Florida (western edge of Fort Lauderdale). Diversity is the name of the game musically at this festival; there are rock, blues, folk, electronic, reggae, and funk acts performing. A sampling of the around 40 acts performing on the three stages at this year's festival include, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, The Flaming Lips, Montreal's own Kid Koala, The Black Crowes, Keller Williams, Wilco, and Burning Spear. Previously the festival was two full days, but this year they have added extra entertainment with the Friday Night Sound Check. The Friday Night Sound Check will include Perpetual Groove, Buckethead, Benevento Russo Duo, Hot Buttered Rum, Theresa Andersson, and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. There will also be a Sound Check Pre-Party starting at 4 p.m. on Friday. On March 11th and 12th the festival runs from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. There are also Late Nite Shows that take place which will feature The Disco Biscuits, Umphrey's McGee and others. This year you will also be able to camp out on the site. Purchase your tickets quickly because they only sell 15,000 of them.
