Commence the countdown—we are now less than 7 days away from what is guaranteed to be the newest, hottest festival to hit Florida—Okeechobee Festival. A three-day event spanning from March 4-6, this festival brings together over 80 bands + DJs, from all walks of life, to the tiny city of Okeechobee for an adventure that none will soon forget.
From electronic big-hitters like Skrillex and Bassnectar, to the rock titans that are Mumford and Sons, and rap newcomer Fetty Wap, you get an amazing array of artists that would satisfy all music lovers alike. Dance your heart out to the folk tunes of The Avett Brothers or get your rap on with Kendrick Lamar or maybe even indulge in a yoga session or wander amongst the many art installations covering the lush backyard that is Okeechobee. The music doesn’t stop as performances are planned out for 24 hours a day.=
Spanning several acres of land where you can pitch a tent, sleep in an RV or just set up camp in a hammock amongst the trees, Okeechobee Festival takes you away from the real world and brings you to a musical wonderland where you can get completely lost in for 3 days. From jungle stages at Jungle 51 to beach parties at the Aquachobee Stage, get ready to revel with your fellow bassheads and art fanatics for what will definitely be an experience of a lifetime. While this may be the first installment of Okeechobee, you can bet that it won’t be the last.
