CAKE Added To Langerado Music Festival

Sacramento, CA band CAKE has been added to the already talent loaded lineup of the 2nd annual Langerado Music Festival. Set to perform a 90-minute co-headlining set, CAKE, of “The Distance” fame has a long and storied history. CAKE’s musical palette includes touches of folk, hip-hop, soul, funk and country, to name a few, all topped with a thick layer of irony. Stridently from California’s fertile Central Valley, this Sacramento band has attracted the kind of ecstatic response most newcomers only dream of and seasoned veterans justifiably envy. Based almost entirely on the strength of their live performances and on word of mouth, CAKE has built up a sizable following that is fast billowing out of the northern California region in a sort of reckless eastward expansion.

The Langerado Music Festival is taking place on Saturday March 6th at Young Circle Park in historic downtown Hollywood, Florida. Bigger and better than the inaugural event in 2003, this year the Langerado will feature over 15 bands on 3 stages performing the best in live music from 11 a.m. until midnight, live art installations courtesy of Miami born artist Dave “LEBO” LeBatard and other local artists, a Beer Garden featuring some of the finest microbrewed beer from around the country and much more.

With returning favorites like moe., G. Love & Special Sauce, MOFRO, and Perpetual Groove joined by the likes of reggae legends the Wailers, alt-rockers Cracker, the psychedelic electronica of Sound Tribe Sector 9, and the southern-fried rock of the Drive-by Truckers, the Langerado Music Festival will feature the most diverse one-day lineup South Florida has ever seen.

Young Circle Park is located on 13-acres of land in historic downtown Hollywood, featuring wide open spaces complemented by plenty of shade cover. The average temperature in March is a beautiful 72 degrees, the perfect respite from the cold weather the rest of the country is mired in. Hollywood Beach is less than 1 mile from the venue, and numerous boutique hotels are available for daily and weekly rentals, the perfect opportunity to relax and spend Spring Break in the warmth and sunshine South Florida offers on a year round basis.

“We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s festival,” said Mark Brown of Brown Coffee Productions and Jam Cruise. “Last year really set the tone for what this event can and will become in the years to come. We’re the first festival of the season, the March weather in Florida is about as good as it gets. The diversity in the lineup really offers something for everyone, as well as turning people onto something they might not have heard before. That’s really what a music festival should be about, trying to see as many new acts as you can over the course of the day.”
