It's interesting that when you ask anyone from south Florida what the local music scene is like, most locals will reply 'What music scene?". Now don't get me wrong, there is a music scene that really caters to the jazz, Latin and blues world but nothing alternative or rock that really stood out and connected south Florida to the rest of the world since the days of the Hollywood Sportatorium that is until now Langerado.
The Langerado Music Festival is known for kicking off the country's festival season each March by attracting thousands of music lovers from all over the country to sunny South Florida. The event, happening at Markham Park on March 9, 10, and 11, 2007, is reputed for always gathering a diverse collection of today's hottest artists.
Thanks for waiting to read about the best part of Wakarusa! The best three shows of the festival lay here in the second half of the review. In this section, I want to tell you which bands earned my top three ribbons of the festival. Please keep in mind that I could not possibly see all of the bands that played, although I did try to see most.
