Festival season begins early in South Florida, and the Langerado Music Festival is quickly becoming the destination of choice for traveling music lovers ready to start the journey. The festival, now in its third year, is preparing to host a slew of fans from colder climates: music lovers, college spring-breakers and sun seekers who are aching for festival season to begin.
