It is quite a challenge to stand out in today’s festival landscape, but with the inaugural event this past spring, the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival did just that and more. From legendary performances at the first ever PoWoW! (featuring Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, Miguel, Hall & Oates’ John Oates, Mumford & Sons, Skrillex, Mac Miller, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and more), to signature venues like the lakeside sandy beach of Aquachobee, and the otherworldly confines of Jungle 51 hidden within a forest of luminescent trees, Okeechobee wowed a sold-out gathering of open-minded music fans with a weekend worthy of its position as the first major event of the music festival season.
“We are excited to build upon the success of OMF 16. This year’s lineup is great and we have more surprises to come. We are opening up more of our amazing property for people to explore, and continuing to invest in art and the overall festival experience. Can’t wait to open the doors on March 2nd!”
– Kevin Collinsworth (Soundslinger CEO)
