Music festival season begins early in South Florida, and the Langerado Music Festival is the destination of choice for traveling music lovers ready to start the journey.

The fourth annual Langerado Music Festival will be held at Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida for the second year in a row. The gorgeous sprawling facility perched at the eastern edge of the Everglades Conservation Area will house multiple stages, food and crafts vendors including an extensive selection of micro-brewed beers, a children's play area, limited on-site camping, art installations by LEBO and more.

To ensure an intimate experience for all involved, only 15,000 tickets will be sold for each day. Music will play from 11 am to 9 pm, with Langerado Late Night shows to take place at multiple venues throughout Ft. Lauderdale.

The Langerado Music Festival is a co-production between Brown Coffee Productions and South Florida Jams. Mark Brown of Brown Coffee Productions is the managing partner of the Jam Cruise. Ethan Schwartz of South Florida Jams produces and promotes events in South Florida.
