Did not realize that Wanee was in June at one time. When did it change to the mid April dates?

I do believe Wanee started in April.

Here is what I think happened: the 2009 Langerado fest, was scheduled for March 2009, but was cancelled due to slow ticket sales. Nobody wanted to camp in downtown Miami (and who could blame them?). I strongly suspect that Ethan (the guy who put on Langerado) got in touch with the Wanee folks, and was able to negotiate many of the acts booked for Langerado to appear at Wanee. With all the reshuffling, the dates wound up for Wanee to happen in June that year.

In this way, Ethan was able to avoid a whole bunch of legal issues with cancelled artist contracts. If you look at who was scheduled for Langerado 2009, and Wanee 2009 (which went to four days that year), you will see many of the same names.

That is my story and I'm sticking to it :D

I thought it had something to do with Beacon Scheduling and the 40 year Allman Bros tour, but I could be wrong. It happened once before. All I know is that I am glad it happened. We could never bring ourselves to do Wanee due to how close it was to Springfest, but with the June date we went for it. Been going ever since.

The river and nearby springs are MUCH more appealing in June probably.
